This course aims to train you to effectively use R in your statistical analysis for accurate and impactful data-driven decision making.

The Statistics Bootcamp is more than just an introduction to statistics, it teaches you how to use R, a command driven language for quick visual analytics. In addition, you will be presented with multiple business cases that will be solved in the course of lecturing and hands-on workshops.

The lecturers will give extensive illustrations of statistical principles and techniques. Each statistical technique taught will be demonstrated using R so that you can practise R programming in a series of workshops. In addition, you will get to dabble with data visualisation including creating graphs.

Ultimately, you will gain insights into how to use statistics to answer your business questions.

This course is part of the Analytics & Intelligent Systems Series and MTech EBAC Stackable foundation certificate offered by NUS-ISS.
