Are there any Learning Pre-requisites?

The “Data Management & Data Mining through R / Python” programme is essentially of a relatively specialized nature, and hence there are certain learning pre-requisites for the programme.

In order to enhance the efficiency & effectiveness of participants’ learning, it is desirable that participants possess some basic knowledge of Statistics. In addition, prior awareness of and/or exposure to probability theory, linear algebra and calculus would facilitate participants’ learning efficiency.

Prior knowledge of computer programming is not necessary, though this will provide an added advantage.

Participants with no prior exposure to the learning pre-requisites (Statistics, probability theory, probability distributions, etc), as well as participants who wish to refresh their knowledge of these areas, can rapidly bring themselves up to speed through our specially-designed preparatory programme – the “Essentials of Business Analytics” programme.
