Social Dynamics and Network Analytics (MORS-457-0)

**This course was formerly known as MORS-945-0**

Today's business leaders face unparalleled levels of connectivity and complexity. To help students meet these challenges, Social Dynamics and Networks Analytics provides an in-depth introduction to the emerging fields of social dynamics and network science including social networks, social media, tipping points, contagion, the wisdom of crowds, prediction markets, and social capital. Using simple yet powerful hands-on interactive models and exercises, the course covers both theory and applications of social dynamics for organizational growth, leadership, and competitiveness. The course was developed jointly with Professor Uzzi and complements the MORS-430 leadership and organizations course.
