Data and Decisions BABI 8800

Business Analytics & Business Intelligence Course

International Fees

International fees are typically 3.12 times the domestic tuition. Exact cost will be calculated upon completion of registration.

Course details

This course emphasizes analytical techniques and concepts that results in broadly applicable solutions to business problems. The course introduces decision making under uncertainty from a computational perspective and provides an overview of the necessary tools for building autonomous and decision-support systems. Following an introduction to probabilistic models and decision theory, we will cover computational methods for solving decision problems with model uncertainty and imperfect state information. Students will develop data-driven predictive models when faced with uncertainty in business. Presents an advanced course in the application of statistical methods to business problems. Statistics provide techniques for interpreting data, permitting managers to use information to answer larger questions. We will be focusing on topics such as Regression, Time Series Analysis, and Forecasting. Extensive lab work using computer software will lead to theoretical solutions. Students will interpret and apply these solutions as a guide to practical management action.

Prerequisite(s)

  • Acceptance into the Bachelor of Business Administration program.
