BUS 455 - Forecasting & Predictive Analytics

This course expands on the basic statistical tools of BUS 350 in two major ways: [1] New methods of Modeling/Analyzing data and [2] Development of automated structures to support decisions tied to data.  This course is a very “hands on” working-with-data, either data sets provided or those you are specifically interested in. Many students have gone on to utilize the skills/tools from this class successfully in their first jobs or startups.  The instructor will present extensive examples from personal experience with forecasting and modeling for companies ranging from Fortune 100 to successful startups.   Through sharing of experience and discussion of many data sets and problems we gain years of experience in a few months. The course is structured to challenge the very good quantitative people while providing a path to success for the numerically challenged.
