While data abounds in almost every aspect of business operations, the ability to transform this data into a usable form often lags behind data access. Python is a programming language that is suited to meet this need (having a simple syntax and many libraries that make data handling easier). The first part of this course will be an introduction to Python. Students will become familiar with Python data structures, types, and syntax while working on project-based assignments. In the second part of the course we will leverage Python to explore the different phases of a data analysis project including: acquiring and cleaning data, exploring data and relationships between variables, automating data collection, and presenting data visualizations.
