Multivariate Analysis: Techniques and Software



As the name indicates, multivariate analysis is the set of data analysis techniques which involves observation and analysis of more than one variable at a time.

With recent advancements in the methodologies and availability of easy to use software, multivariate data analysis offers dependable solutions and exciting opportunities. 

Norma School offers this unique training programme to learn multivariate data analysis from the basics to applications. This innovative, intensive programme offers the most informal and the simplest possible mode of learning environment to study multivariate analysis.

The programme starts with clear exposition to the basic concepts and proceeds to the details of each multivariate tool, context of the use of each technique, the most appropriate software for each multivariate technique and case studies for each technique. The programme focuses on fifteen widely used multivariate techniques. This training programme will open up unlimited possibilities before you!



The programme has the objective to build up professional expertise in multivariate data analysis with the participants. Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

• Understand the basic concepts in multivariate analysis
• Choose the most appropriate multivariate technique for a given data set
• Choose the most suitable software for the selected multivariate analysis
• Perform the analysis using the software
• Interpret the numerical and graphical results
