Course Syllabus

Abstract

The course introduces students to basic statistical methods for exploratory analysis and the analysis of relationships. Students will get ready for data management and for basic comparative, correlation and regression analysis of survey, sales and other types of data commonly used in marketing and management. Students will get intermediate R statistical computing skills necessary for more advanced courses. 50% of the course is dedicated to hands-on R coding, which is why the course will be useful even for students who studied Econometrics using another package but want to master the popular and powerful R package. In addition, being tailored to management students, this course does not duplicate traditional Econometrics courses for economists in terms of empirical examples used in it.
