Course Description

We have started offering an introductory R workshop. Its main target group are Tilburg Master of Accountancy students. The workshop is a very short introduction, consisting of two sessions (1h:45min each). Its purpose is to introduce Master students with no previous programming experience to the R programming language—especially with an eye towards the Master file and courses, such as Data-Driven Decision-Making. But we hope everyone with an interest in learning R will find something useful here.
