How the Spécialisation Works

Suivez les cours

Une Spécialisation Coursera est une série de cours axés sur la maîtrise d'une compétence. Pour commencer, inscrivez-vous directement à la Spécialisation ou passez en revue ses cours et choisissez celui par lequel vous souhaitez commencer. Lorsque vous vous abonnez à un cours faisant partie d'une Spécialisation, vous êtes automatiquement abonné(e) à la Spécialisation complète. Il est possible de terminer seulement un cours : vous pouvez suspendre votre formation ou résilier votre abonnement à tout moment. Rendez-vous sur votre tableau de bord d'étudiant pour suivre vos inscriptions aux cours et vos progrès.

Projet pratique

Chaque Spécialisation inclut un projet pratique. Vous devez réussir le(s) projet(s) pour terminer la Spécialisation et obtenir votre Certificat. Si la Spécialisation inclut un cours dédié au projet pratique, vous devrez terminer tous les autres cours avant de pouvoir le commencer.

Obtenir un Certificat

Lorsque vous aurez terminé tous les cours et le projet pratique, vous obtiendrez un Certificat que vous pourrez partager avec des employeurs éventuels et votre réseau professionnel.

Cours1

Introduction to Data Analytics for Business

4.6
346 notes
88 avis
This course will expose you to the data analytics practices executed in the business world. We will explore such key areas as the analytical process, how data is created, stored, accessed, and how the organization works with data and creates the environment in which analytics can flourish. What you learn in this course will give you a strong foundation in all the areas that support analytics and will help you to better position yourself for success within your organization. You’ll develop skills and a perspective that will make you more productive faster and allow you to become a valuable asset to your organization. This course also provides a basis for going deeper into advanced investigative and computational methods, which you have an opportunity to explore in future courses of the Data Analytics for Business specialization....

Welcome to the second course in the Data Analytics for Business specialization! This course will introduce you to some of the most widely used predictive modeling techniques and their core principles. By taking this course, you will form a solid foundation of predictive analytics, which refers to tools and techniques for building statistical or machine learning models to make predictions based on data. You will learn how to carry out exploratory data analysis to gain insights and prepare data for predictive modeling, an essential skill valued in the business. You’ll also learn how to summarize and visualize datasets using plots so that you can present your results in a compelling and meaningful way. We will use a practical predictive modeling software, XLMiner, which is a popular Excel plug-in. This course is designed for anyone who is interested in using data to gain insights and make better business decisions. The techniques discussed are applied in all functional areas within business organizations including accounting, finance, human resource management, marketing, operations, and strategic planning. The expected prerequisites for this course include a prior working knowledge of Excel, introductory level algebra, and basic statistics....

Business Analytics for Decision Making

4.6
162 notes
37 avis
In this course you will learn how to create models for decision making. We will start with cluster analysis, a technique for data reduction that is very useful in market segmentation. You will then learn the basics of Monte Carlo simulation that will help you model the uncertainty that is prevalent in many business decisions. A key element of decision making is to identify the best course of action. Since businesses problems often have too many alternative solutions, you will learn how optimization can help you identify the best option. What is really exciting about this course is that you won’t need to know a computer language or advanced statistics to learn about these predictive and prescriptive analytic models. The Analytic Solver Platform and basic knowledge of Excel is all you’ll need. Learners participating in assignments will be able to get free access to the Analytic Solver Platform....

Communicating Business Analytics Results

4.3
90 notes
12 avis
The analytical process does not end with models than can predict with accuracy or prescribe the best solution to business problems. Developing these models and gaining insights from data do not necessarily lead to successful implementations. This depends on the ability to communicate results to those who make decisions. Presenting findings to decision makers who are not familiar with the language of analytics presents a challenge. In this course you will learn how to communicate analytics results to stakeholders who do not understand the details of analytics but want evidence of analysis and data. You will be able to choose the right vehicles to present quantitative information, including those based on principles of data visualization. You will also learn how to develop and deliver data-analytics stories that provide context, insight, and interpretation....

Si vous vous abonnez à un cours faisant partie d'une Spécialisation, vous êtes automatiquement abonné(e) à la Spécialisation complète. Visitez votre tableau de bord d'étudiant(e) pour suivre vos progrès.

  • Ce cours est entièrement en ligne : vous n'avez donc pas besoin de vous présenter physiquement dans une salle de classe. Vous pouvez accéder à vos vidéos de cours, lectures et devoirs en tout temps et en tout lieu, par l'intermédiaire du Web ou de votre appareil mobile.

  • Cette Spécialisation n'est pas associée à des crédits universitaires, mais certaines universités peuvent décider d'accepter des Certificats de Spécialisation pour des crédits. Vérifiez-le auprès de votre établissement pour en savoir plus.

  • Time to completion can vary based on your schedule, but most learners are able to complete the Specialization in four to five months.

  • Ideally, your background would include some basics of data manipulation, statistics, and models for decision making. Learners must have working knowledge of Excel and some basic understanding of high-level programming instructions. This is not a computer science specialization but students will be learning some basic commands in SQL.

  • Although the four courses in the specialization can be taken separately, they are deeply integrated around their lessons. We recommend taking them in the order that they are offered.

  • At the end of this specialization, you will be able to:

    Apply data analytics to business problems. This involves the entire business analytics process, from data capturing, extraction, analysis, modeling, and presentation of findings.

    Extract and manipulate data stored in large databases using SQL.

    Identify and apply statistical models that are commonly used to implement descriptive analytics.

    Apply predictive analytics tools to data sets and interpret results. In particular, you will be able to use Excel-based tools to construct models based on regression, simulation, and data mining.

    Apply prescriptive analytics tools to data sets and interpret results. In particular, you will be able to use Excel-based tools to construct models pertaining to linear programming, integer programming, and simulation-optimization methods.
