Introduction to Analytics Transforming Data into Insights

In today’s increasingly complex business world, critical decisions can become ‘shots in the dark’ unless informed by relevant data. However, applications and software produce an overwhelming abundance of data that can make it challenging to focus in on answers to critical questions. To effectively leverage data, organizations need to transform it into actionable information, yet many are struggling to do that. This course introduces a repeatable process you can use to ensure you’re getting the most out of your data. Over the three-day series, you’ll learn how to transform data into robust information to be leveraged in a variety of ways to support your success. You will have the opportunity to practice this process through hands-on exercises led by Penn State, reinforced by interactive discussions with peers, ensuring that the course learnings are practical and applicable to your business setting.

Transfer, Withdrawal, and Refunds

If an accepted applicant finds it necessary to transfer to another session of the same program, one transfer will be allowed with no charge if arranged more than six (6) weeks prior. Additional transfers, transfers to another program, or those arranged less than six (6) weeks prior incur a charge of 10% of the current program fee.

The sponsoring company may identify a replacement, but the replacement candidate must be accepted for the program by meeting program requirements.

If an accepted applicant withdraws completely from a program, the following refunds will apply if Penn State Executive Programs is notified in writing within the time period stated:

  • A full refund will be given if notification is received more than six weeks prior to the start of the program.
  • A 50% refund will be given if notification is received between two (2) and six (6) weeks before the start of the program.
  • No refund will be made if notification is received two (2) weeks or less before the start of the program.

Note: All notification of withdrawals, transfers, and substitutions must be confirmed in writing by the registered participant or their agent. If written notification is not received, the full program fee will be assessed.


The University may cancel or postpone any course or activity because of insufficient enrollment or other unforeseen circumstances. If a program is cancelled or postponed, the University will refund registration fees but cannot be held responsible for any other related charges or expenses, including cancellation/change charges by airlines or travel agencies. In the case of postponement, as an alternative to a refund, program fees may be transferred to another session of that program.

Payment Terms

If participant does not pay for course fees, meals and/or lodging prior to attendance, any applicable certificates earned by the participant will be withheld until balance is paid in full.
