Course Focus

In business, we don’t often have the luxury of making one decision at a time; instead, we usually face multiple decisions at once, in highly complex situations where each decision has potentially far-reaching impacts. In this environment, professionals need a robust, quantifiable understanding of these ripple effects in order to meet business objectives and raise the odds of decision-making success. In this course, you will create and use data models for optimizing decision making in situations where resources are constrained—and two or more decisions whose consequences interact must be made simultaneously.
