Additional topics include subjectivity in risk analysis, causal modeling, stochastic optimization, portfolio analysis, and risk model evaluation.

Recommended prior course: MSDS 413-DL Time Series Analysis and Forecasting.

Prerequisites: MSDS 420-DL Database Systems and Data Preparation and MSDS 422-DL Practical Machine Learning.
