BUS_DM 501-0 : Analytics for Decision Makers


Predictive business analytics is a quickly growing field, but many companies struggle trying to tap into the power of available data without being overwhelmed by it. This program is geared to decision makers and leaders who need to better understand the strategic value that business analytics can bring to an organization. Students will learn what analytics is and what it can and can’t do; how to build an analytics culture and identify the skills needed to implement analytics; how to integrate it with other strategic processes; how to define data needs and gather data from across the organization and beyond; and how to make strategic decisions based on results of analysis.

The seminar will be led by industry leaders with experience in developing analytic teams for major corporations. Class sessions will include lectures, the review of case studies, small group exercises and discussion, and one-on-one interaction with the instructors.
