Print Teaching
Full-Time / Part-Time MBA
Business Analytics II (DECS-431-0)
This course is equivalent to the MMM core course MMM Business Analytics (DECS-440). 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.
