The College of Media at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign is excited to offer workshops that will teach participants how to make strategic data-driven decisions.
In an era of big data, it is essential to have the skills to quickly decipher what data is important and transform it into meaningful business decisions.

Storytelling with Data
Chicago, Ill.: June 6-10, $1,495 and Urbana, Ill.: June 21-22, $350/$500
Telling a great story is an invaluable skill.
