Course Overview

There is a demand for today’s leaders not only to be numerate but also to appreciate how they can use data generated every day in their
organizations in order to make sound, data driven decisions that will ultimately give them a competitive advantage.
The Forecasting and Predictive Analytics course will equip participants with fundamental techniques used for predictive analytics: regression,
classification, clustering, optimization, and simulation. The course starts off with exploration of the data to better understand it, understanding
business needs and proceeds to equipping learners with skills to develop and evaluate decision support models. Some basic Artificial Intelligence
algorithms including Decision Trees, Naïve Bayes, K-Nearest neighbor will be explored for the purposes of implementing the business models.
Monte Carlo Simulation will be applied for simulation problems. The R open source package and Microsoft Excel will be used for implementation.
