IEORE4524 Analytics in Practice

Instructor: Hardeep Johar

This is a core course for the MSBA students. In this course, groups of students will work on real world projects in analytics. Students will focus on three aspects of analytics: identifying client analytical requirements; assembling, cleaning and organizing data; identifying and implementing analytical techniques (statistics, OR, machine learning); and delivering results in a client friendly format. Each project will have a well defined goal and will come with the sources of data pre-identified and have been structured so that they can be completed in one semester. The current roster of companies offering projects includes Planned Parenthood, IRI, Weight Watchers, and Biz2Credit though this may change before the start of the semester.

Please note that this is a client facing class and you should only enroll in this class if you believe you have the skills, time, and energy required to satisfy the requirements of the project. You may need to visit client sites and, consequently, please keep your Fridays clear.
