The class requires some basic knowledge of statistics.
In this course, we will examine how data science technologies can be used to improve marketing decision making. We will study the fundamental principles and techniques of data science, and we will examine real world examples and cases to place data science techniques in marketing context, and to develop data analytic thinking.

This course presents a set of fundamental principles for extracting useful knowledge from data. These fundamental principles are the foundation for many algorithms and techniques for marketing data science, but also underlie the processes and methods for approaching marketing problems data-analytically, evaluating particular marketing data science solutions, and evaluating general marketing data science plans. The class meetings will be a combination of lectures on the fundamental material, discussions of marketing applications and cases, exercises and workshops with data.
