Teaching Methods

Your faculty will bring online courses to life through lectures, class discussions, and case-based learning. Professors use actual data science and business problems, leverage interdisciplinary perspectives, and help you understand the "Data to Decision" cycle. The case-based learning method uses real-world business analytics cases as the basis for discussions and team projects. This approach challenges you to see business problems from a corporation's perspective and to take what you learn in class to develop quantitatively supported recommendations. Because so much of your online learning happens through debate and analysis, you’re expected to be an active participant in class discussions. As a result, you’ll learn to think as a data scientist does--practically, critically, and creatively--preparing you to tackle business problems from multiple analytics perspectives.
