Fall Data Classes at Stanford University
More and more people are starting to tap into the barely touched opportunities of data. Supporting marketing campaigns with more market data, understanding and preventing product failures with real-time measures, retaining customers with detailed behavior monitoring, or fighting fraud with real-time analysis of hundreds of millions of transactions are among the many examples of how pervasive data has become across all lines of business. After years of buzz and mixed results, data technology, management techniques, and processes have gained maturity. Data is now more readily accessible to everyone.
In this course, students will learn how to engage with data and discover concrete and actionable business intelligence techniques in order to gain immediate control of data and deliver accurate insights, manage change to drive project acceptance, and design lean and sustainable processes. The course will also include detailed case studies and feature expert guest speakers to provide invaluable and fascinating field experience.
