Data mining and advanced data analysis courses are becoming more and more popular in B-schools. I asked colleagues about such electives in their universities, and also did some web- searching. It looks like different courses range in topics and flavor, depending in many times on the instructor’s field of expertise (statistics, operations research, information systems, marketing, machine learning, etc). But all courses typically revolve around real business applications.
Here’s an initial list that I’ve composed (alphabetical in School name). I hope that others who teach or are taking such courses will add to the list. Links to syllabuses are also welcome. This can be a gerat resource for instructors (sharing information, material, experiences, etc.) as well as for MBA students!Business SchoolsFuqua School of Business, Duke: Data Mining (MGRECON 491)Indian School of Business (ISB): Business Intelligence Using Data Mining (update by R Bapna)Kelley School of Business, Indiana University: Data Mining (K513) SyllabusLundquist College of Business, U of Oregon: Information Analysis for Managerial Decisions (DSC 433/533) syllabus McCombs School of Business, UTexas at Austin: Data Mining (MIS 382N.9)Robert H Smith School of Business, U of MD College Park: Data Analysis for Decision Makers (BUDT733) syllabus
