Data Analysis For Managers
Managers are increasing being called upon to interpret and perform statistical analyses.
The purpose of this introductory course is to make the tools of data analysis accessible to individuals in management and (non-statistical) management support positions. After learning the mechanics and interpretation of these tools and techniques, we will look at applications in practice. These will include polls and surveys, clinical trials, observational studies and other applications of statistics.
The course is divided into four units: Descriptive Statistics and Probability, Sampling and Estimation, Tests of Hypotheses, and Regression Analysis.
Evaluation will consist of weekly assignments, one or two in-class exams, and a final exam.
