Analytics and Decision-Making: Unlock the Power of Data
Executive Education Open Enrollment Program
Master techniques for the collection, manipulation and interpretation of data to inform key business decisions and create impact.
Superior analytic capability spells competitive advantage — and success. Analytics and Decision-Making: Unlock the Power of Data uniquely features renowned Carnegie Mellon faculty experts with a keen focus on immediate application and impact for organizations.
This program charts the path to value from analytical modeling for business problems. Building on a set of multidisciplinary cases cutting across functional areas of business, this course integrates the three increasing levels of analytics involved in reaping business value from data in a given problem: the descriptive phase of inferring key features and relationships in the problem; the predictive phase of forecasting outcomes of short-term tactical actions; and the prescriptive phase of long-term planning based on analytics.
