BSAD 8080 BUSINESS FORECASTING (3 credits)
The course will cover forecasting tools and applications applied to business settings. We will cover traditional Econometric forecasting methods in the first half of the class. In the second half of the course, we will focus on models in predictive analytics and machine learning, since these models are quickly becoming critical tools for forecasters in many settings. The course will include lecture and lab time, and labs will be focused on teaching students how to implement the models discussed in lectures. (Cross-listed with ECON 8310).
Prerequisite(s)/Corequisite(s): ECON 8320 (or equivalent programming experience) AND ECON 8300 (or equivalent multivariate regression analysis coursework) or permission of instructor. Not open to non-degree graduate students.
