Topic outline

    A warm welcome to the Data Analytics for Managers course page!

    This course consists of two modules of 3 ECTS each: 1) Principles of planning and leading with data; and 2) Decision making based on optimization and modelling.

    On this hands-on course you get to analyze data related to real-life business decisions and make recommendations based on them. The course is designed so that we have lectures on Monday morning at 9.15 -12 in which the assignment for that week is introduced. We will have an optional workshop on Friday afternoons (12.15 - 15; in person only) if you are having challenges with the data analysis assignment. The data analysis assignment for each week is due at 23.00 on Friday.

    All Monday lectures are offered in hybrid format via Zoom. The Zoom link is available below. Unfortunately our classroom (V002 SAASTAMOISEN SÄÄTIÖ) does not have enough capacity to accommodate the large number of students that have registered for this course. Please book a slot in advance below for attending the session in person. The classroom capacity is 60 students.

    Please find the course syllabus below (updated version with all readings included).

    Best wishes,
