BIG DATA VISUALIZATION AND STORYTELLING

Course Code: CEBD 1251
Awesome. In the first two courses, you learned how to collect and store Big Data. Now comes the fun part: mining that data for gold and then spinning that gold into compelling business stories that captivate and convince. In this course, you'll use sophisticated data-visualization tools to understand data and share information with others. You'll also learn how to manage a Big Data science project from beginning to end, and that's exactly what they'll want you to be doing in your next job. This is the third and final course, where all your hard work pays off and you earn your Certificate of Business Analytics and Visualization. Props to you!
