duration 3 weeks

The course will be a mix of synchronous Zoom sessions as well as asynchronous activities
and quizzes. This course introduces data analytic techniques via quantitative tools and
sophisticated software (R and Tableau). These techniques are drawn from machine
learning, data mining, and optimization. Note that this is not a technical or theoretical
course. This course does not aim to produce experts in statistical analysis; rather, the aim
is to provide students competency to interact with and manage a team of analytics
professionals. Furthermore, this is not a technical or theoretical course; we will instead
focus on the application of analytics techniques to real business situations, with the
aim of creating insight and value.
