Quantitative Analysis expands on the summer Business Foundations coursework and is taught by Professor Aaron Perry during the Fall semester.
Businesses around the world are looking for ways to leverage data to create business value: data about customers, inventories, business operations, product performance, prices, sales, advertising campaigns, employees, and supply chains. Decision-making via quantitative analysis using tools from operations research, statistical modeling, predictive analytics, and more is a part of that leverage and a part of what is widely becoming known as business analytics.
