The Introduction to R course of the MARUG will again be offered in cooperation with a partner. This course will be given in English. During this course, we will introduce you in R and we will guide you through all the steps needed to process raw data into a (predictive)model.

The course is offered by CIT. R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. It provides a wide variety of statistical and graphical techniques, and is highly extensible. The language is very popular among academic scientists and researchers. R has a reputation of being hard to learn, maybe due to the fact that it lacks a Graphical User Interface (GUI). This introduction to R will give a starting point for people interested in R. It emphasizes on the understanding of how R works, aiming at a beginner's level, rather than at expert use. The course will be given online and will be divided in 5 sessions of 3 hours each. The times of the course are based on the study schedule of MSc Marketing MADS students.
