Introduction to R for Data Analysis

Course description

Introduction to R for Data Analysis

The course covers all aspects of the R Language, focusing on its ability to extract organisationally significant information from databases and other large data sets.

Students will not only acquire a great deal of technical knowledge but will also gain insights into some sophisticated statistical and analytical concepts and the way analysis supports planning and strategic management processes.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Create and manipulate all R’s data structures, import data into them from outside sources and learned how to clean and transform your data.
  • Use all its core statistical functions, deploy them for useful organisational purposes and test and refine your models.
  • Present your findings using standard R graphics, ggplot2, Tableau and Power BI
  • Create your own sophisticated functions and have an appreciation of R’s more powerful procedural programming techniques.
  • Apply R techniques to the work of a data analyst and use them to support the planning and strategic management processes
