TCE BidStats

Description:

This course counts toward the following majors: Decision Sciences, Health Enterprise Management, Managerial Analytics, Management & Strategy.

Most strategic decisions businesses make require an assessment of cause and effect. What will happen to prices and sales if I open a new location in a particular geographic area? How will consumers respond if I begin posting the caloric content of my food products at the point of purchase? What is the effect of seasonal bonuses on employee productivity? This course is a deep dive into the empirical tool that is most valuable for linking cause to effect: regression analysis. You will learn how to perform convincing data analyses to answer specific questions, how to evaluate analyses others have done, and how to present data analysis in a clear and accessible way.

Students who took DECS 434 prior to the launch of DECS 431 (Fall 2013) must have permission of the instructor to enroll.

Prerequisites:
All Students: DECS-431-0 OR DECS-434-0 OR DECS-440-0
