The Business Analytics Initiative sponsors two executive education classes targeted to executives in a broad range of industries. These classes provide an overview of their respective topics together with deep-dives into specific aspects of the field. They are targeted to non-technical executives who are looking to develop the knowledge and intuition necessary to transform their teams and their companies using Business Analytics.

The Initiative is also able to run custom classes tailored to your specific needs; contact us for details.

Business Analytics

The ability to use data effectively to drive rapid, precise, and profitable decisions has been a critical strategic advantage for companies as diverse as WalMart, Google, Capital One, and Disney. In addition, many current and recent startups are based on the application of analytics to large data bases. With the increasing availability of broad and deep sources of information – so-called “Big Data” – business analytics are becoming an even more critical capability for enterprises of all types and all sizes.

In this three-day program, executives learn to identify, evaluate, and capture business analytic opportunities that create value. Learn how to use data to develop insights and predictive capabilities using machine learning, data mining, and forecasting techniques. Next, find out how the use of optimization can support decision-making in the presence of a large number of alternatives and business constraints. Finally, explore the challenges that can arise in implementing analytical approaches within an organization.
