The UConn School of Business Operations and Information Management (OPIM) Department invited students from the Business Connections Learning Community (BCLC) to an individualized workshop on Tableau Visualization Software.
Professor Jon Moore of the OPIM Department taught the workshop to students majoring in Management Information Systems (MIS) and Accounting. The workshop allowed students to work through many hands-on exercises, watch videos on data visualization, and ask questions about Tableau and data visualization.
Moore, the coordinator of both workshops, believes that it is important for students in all fields of business to understand Tableau. Because of the rise of data analytics in business, it is important to be able to draw meaningful conclusions from data through visualizations. Moore believes that Tableau is a great place for students to get started with data visualization because it is a very user-friendly interface.
