Teaching and Learning Strategy
This unit is aimed at students who have developed higher levels of strategic insight and who desire improved skills in data manipulation, analysis and presentation. This is a predominantly applied course, designed to provide students with technical and analytical skills. Lecture attendance is critical, as it is only by attending lectures that students will understand the concepts used in tutorials. Tutorials are held in PC Labs and provide an opportunity to practice analytics hands-on using MS-Excel and Tableau software. The limited face-to-face time in class is not sufficient to learn all that we will need to develop some competence in the software and methods discussed and examined. Students will need to practice and research outside of the classroom.
Satisfactory Completion of Unit
