About the course
This online course will teach marketers how to use data to make better business decisions. Designed specifically for marketing and sales professionals without math, statistical, or analytic backgrounds, the course will focus on the types of data that marketers are most often confronted with: social media, mobile applications, paid media, website analytics, and customer profiling data. By breaking down seemingly complex topics using easy-to-understand concepts and visualization techniques, students will learn how to collect, analyze, interpret, and visualize data and even use it to make predictions. These skills, when taken together, will enable students to develop a core set of skills that will be useful in virtually any marketing situation, from creating a measurement strategy to identifying and targeting new customers. Course material will be supplemented with how-to videos to help students learn the mechanics of dealing with data. Assignments will aid in developing each student’s grasp of particular topics. By the end of the course, students will have learned how to use data as part of their ongoing decision-making process.

Course work is completed on a weekly basis when you have the time. You can log in and participate in the class whenever it's convenient for you. If you can’t attend the weekly video meetings, the sessions are always recorded for you and your instructor is just an email away.
