This subject develops the student’s facility for evidence-based decision making, by introducing students to the use and application of data. As the business world has increasing access to data, and in the availability of big data sets which allow greater understanding of customers and other business related data, effective use of the data will enable decisions to become more informed. This subject will consider the role of data in an evolving business system, discuss and review common sources of data and processes for developing superior data sets, and will introduce the quantitative methods that are needed for understanding what the data tells us re the decision we need to make. It develops an understanding of modern computational methods to solve quantitative problems in business decision making, using a case-based approach to using data.
