EMBA 804 Analytics for Managers

This course is a review of basic data analytics concepts essential for decision modeling and analysis in business environments.  It is designed to prepare students for taking EMBA 825, Modeling and Analysis for Executive Decision Making.  Topics include descriptive statistics, probability, discrete and continuous random variables, sampling distributions, confidence intervals, and hypothesis testing.  The course is divided into four modules, each of which is succeeded by an on-line post-test.  Students will be able to keep taking these tests for one week after the conclusion of the course.  We use lectures, videos, exercises and appropriate software to illustrate all concepts.
