Probability and Statistics for Business and Data Science course covers all you need to know about statistics and probability to thrive in business and the field of data science. This hands-on course will cover statistical theory and how to apply it to issues in the real world. There are assessment examinations, in-course quizzes, and example problems in every section. The most prevalent statistical distributions will then be covered, giving the students a firm understanding of how to work with the uniform, binomial, Poisson, and normal distributions.

The remaining three sections of the course will cover advanced concepts like chi-squared analysis, regression analysis, and ANOVA (analysis of variance). Because the sections are modular and arranged by subject, students can quickly find what they need and get started. The course features HD Video with understandable explanations and top-notch animations, as well as in-depth case studies that demonstrate how to use this information in the real world. Currently, udemy is offering the Probability and Statistics for Business and Data Science course for up to 87 % off i.e. INR 449 (INR 3,499).

Featured Review

Anonymized User (5/5): Absolutely amazing course!!! This course gives an in-depth knowledge of Statistics and Probability required for Data Science and Machine Learning. Content-wise it is very detailed-oriented and has been divided into small segments to keep it structured as well as easy to understand. Jose’s teaching methodology is outstanding specifically in this course, he tried to solve real-life statistical problems and I liked almost all of his courses including Python for Data Science and ML Bootcamp + Python for Computer Vision and Deep Learning. By completing this course, I am proud to say this is Highly Recommended for aspiring Data Scientists and Machine Learning Engineers.


  • Adam Weissman (5/5): I wish I could give 6 stars, and that there were a sequel to this course because it is the very best.
  • JL Rosas (4/5): Its choice of, in some cases, just Excel examples (instead of Python), was not the best one in my opinion.
  • Fernando Souza Soares (5/5): Thank you Jose for another great course! You never disappoint me!
  • Shreyashi Mukhopadhyay (5/5): Jose has done an excellent job with the content and explanation of every module.


  • Rüzgar Pala Üçkarde? (2/5): Even though I know the subject of probability, I had a hard time understanding this issue from these slides.
