Who should attend
The program is designed for those who do not yet master basic statistics, without a scientific background, not familiar with quantitative methods or calculation procedures.
About the course
The Program’s main characteristic is its practical approach. You won’t have to demonstrate theorems or memorize formulas. You will focus on practical applications, case studies and exercises. At the end of the Program you will be able to manage the most widespread data analysis techniques, descriptive statistics and visuals, and to use them for a correct analysis of both categorical and numerical variables.
