Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2022-2023.

The use of spreadsheet modeling and data analytics in business continues to play center stage in most industries. However, simply employing software tools and learning programming languages is not enough to remain competitive with those companies successfully leveraging an analytics culture firm wide.  Organizations must rethink how work is done and strive to embed new digital behaviors across the entire company. In this course, students will gain exposure to the challenges faced in synergizing the relationship between data and decision making with organizations and leaders. The ultimate goal of the course is to gain clear insights and skills into creating a data driven organization. Three elements prevail:  Analytic Skill, Leadership and a Data Driven Culture. Through discussion, reading, case preparation and model review, emphasis will be placed on the exploration and application of data modeling to enhance decision- making and improve outcomes across the firm.
