WMBA 6635 - Harnessing the Power of Data and Information


(3 sem. cr.) Effectively using data and information can make the difference in whether the best decisions are made or problems are solved correctly. There are multiple approaches to practical managerial problem solving that are rooted in the systematic collection, analysis, and display of relevant data and information. In this course, students examine the importance of data, beginning with the process of transforming information into data, and then focusing on the best methods for presenting data. Students evaluate common misinterpretations or errors in working with data and determine how to detect data presented in a deceptive manner. Students explore current paradigms in data-based decision making and problem solving. They learn how they can use these analytical-thinking practices to improve their general managerial decision-making skills.
