@Anish /Dr. Gootam ,

How many terms/courses does it take to to acquire all the basic and advanced analytics skills? Also can somebody aquire those skills by themselves? Coursera.org is offering free courses in data analysis, what do you think about?

Dr. Goutam, Thanks for throwing light on the "preferred" and "required" skills for analytics world today. We are fortunate to have gone through a program at OSU under your guidance which covers all of these skills.

Strongly recommend all to consider each of these skills before choosing a any suitable analytics program if not SAS and Data mining program at OSU.
