COURSE OVERVIEW

The importance of using evidence based decision making processes has continued to become more popular in a knowledge-driven and information-centric business environment. Using micro, macro and meta-data to engage in meta-trend analysis is an arsenal for institutions that are focused on surviving the next wave – whether that wave is social, economic, political or a mix of these. Mastering such skills require some appreciation of how to engage in business research in the first instance. This in turn calls for an appreciation of critical business areas that call for research. The second phase entails the collection and analysis of data to distil business insights. This course aims at strengthening business research and data analytics capacity amongst the participants.
