Welcome to the People and Organizational Analytics course!
I am Dr Koulouri Anastasia, Senior University Lecturer in Quantitative Methods, and the Responsible Teacher for the course. Together with Doctoral Researcher and Teaching Assistant, Doan Hanh Thi Duc, I will provide you with an overview of people analytics and their use in addressing people issues and challenges and will introduce you to a number of analytical techniques in the context of people management.
The course is worth 3ECTS and will be delivered over six weeks. We will have a lectorial on Tuesdays (14:15-17:00; V002 SAASTAMOISEN SÄÄTIÖ) and an optional lab on Thursdays (14:15-17:00; U344 Undergraduate Center, Otakaari 1) for those who wish to ask questions, go over some hands-on element from the material covered at the lectorial, or need some help with the practice tasks for the week.
We will be using SPSS, starting at our first lectorial, so please ensure that you download and install the software on your laptop before coming along next Tuesday. You can do this via https://download.aalto.fi -further steps in the course syllabus.
For details on the course’s practicalities; assessment, grading and assignments; readings and other materials-please see the course syllabus below.
I look forward to teaching you and I hope you enjoy the course!
All the best,
