MBAA 6080 Data, Models, and Decisions

3 semester hours

The course introduces students to the process of understanding, displaying, visualizing, and transforming data into insight in order to help managerial decision makers make better, more informed, data-driven decisions. The course provides a basic introduction to descriptive analytics, including visualization, predictive analytics, and preliminary exposure to some aspects of prescriptive analytics. The approach taken by the course is very practical and applied: hands-on learning is the central focus of the course. For each topic, a case/problem analysis will require the use of Excel and other specialized analytics and decision-making software.
