Master Data Science Programming in R with New Certificate Program

In a world run by data, the demand for this skill has never been higher. Data analytics is essential to almost every facet of decision-making across any organization. Glassdoor recently named it the #1 job in America, and in the top 3 must-have skills. Cornell’s new certificate program, Data Analytics in R, is designed to help take a fundamental understanding of analytics to a mastery of programming in R.

Ideal for any professional looking to scale their skills and knowledge, this program will teach techniques for understanding, modeling and visualizing data using R, including predictive and prescriptive analytics, machine learning, the Monte Carlo simulation and optimization methods for making both small and large scale decisions.

“The world has really progressed when it comes to data analytics. Today it is being used across all organizations and verticals, be it financial services or consumer goods or travel, to enable informed decisions on a daily basis,” said Chris Anderson, faculty author and Professor at the School of Hotel Administration within Cornell’s SC Johnson College of Business. “We’re now at a place where these are critical skills for people who want to set themselves apart.”

The program consists of three three-week courses:

  • Predictive Analytics in R
  • Clustering, Classification, and Machine Learning in R
  • Prescriptive Analytics in R

Upon completion, participants will receive a Data Analytics in R certificate from Cornell University. Learn more about this program by visiting the eCornell website.
