Obiettivi formativi del corso

Dati e modelli quantitativi caratterizzano sempre di più il moderno processo decisionale. Sapere interpretare e leggere efficacemente i dati a disposizione di un'impresa e creare modelli appropriati per l'individuazione delle strategie ottimali sono spesso la chiave per una maggiore competitività. Con Business analytics si intendono le competenze, le tecnologie, e i metodi che consentono di analizzare dati, sia attuali sia relativi alle performance aziendali del passato, al fine di orientare il processo decisionale e la pianificazione. Il corso fornisce un'ampia introduzione alla business analytics, consentendo agli studenti di acquisire familiarità con varie tipologie di problemi e con i metodi quantitativi che sono maggiormente utilizzati nella soluzione di problemi gestionali. Si adotta un approccio orientato alle applicazioni. Un'attenzione specifica è dedicata all'implementazione pratica delle metodologie proposte attraverso pacchetti software di comune utilizzo nella pratica aziendale (Excel).

Course Objectives

The revolution of big data and business analytics has marked the modern decision-making process. Knowing how to interpret and to effectively read the available data of a company and to create appropriate models for the identification of optimal strategies are increasingly deemed as one of the keys to competitiveness. With business analytics we mean the set of skills, technologies, and methods that allow us to analyze data and develop quantitative models to guide the managerial decision making and business planning. The course provides a broad introduction to business analytics, allowing students to become familiar with alternative problem categories and with the quantitative methods that are most commonly used in the solution of managerial problems. The teaching style is application oriented. Specific attention is devoted to the practical implementation of the proposed methodologies through software packages commonly used in business practice (Excel).
