Business Analytics II (DECS-431-0)
This sequel to DECS-430 extends the statistical techniques learned in that course to allow for the exploration of relationships between variables, primarily through multivariate regression. In addition to learning basic regression skills, including modeling and estimation, students will deepen their understanding of hypothesis testing and how to make inferences and predictions from data. Students will also learn new principles such as identification and robustness. The course has an intense focus on managerially relevant applications, cases and interpretations.

Foundations of Managerial Economics I: Game Theory (MECS-460-3)
This course covers conflict and cooperation among rational decision makers in economic, political and social systems. Topics include games in extensive, normal and characteristic function forms; Nash equilibrium and refinements; Bayesian games; infinitely repeated games; stochastic games; Nash bargaining solution; and cooperative games. The course is self-contained but closely coordinated with ECON-410-3. Prerequisite: Knowledge of probability theory and elementary linear algebra; simultaneous enrollment in ECON-410-3 or permission of the instructor.
