BSB123 Data Analysis

The ability to collect, analyse, manipulate, understand and report data effectively is important in any work environment. This is particularly true in business where learning to deal with randomness, variation and uncertainty is a vital skill for anyone applying their knowledge to inform business decisions. This introductory unit is designed to ensure that students gain an appreciation of the basic tools necessary to develop and apply this skill set. It introduces the fundamental concepts and statistical methods for data analysis, and students will learn about different types and sources of data, and techniques for displaying and analysing data to make business decisions. Students will gain practical data manipulation skills using Microsoft Excel, and practise many of the quantitative techniques applicable to all disciplines, which will be used throughout their further studies.
