Core courses cover major topics like applied multivariate statistics, business intelligence, predictive analytics, time series analysis, decision models and optimization techniques.


The elective courses are related to topics like Human Resource (HR) Analytics, Customer Analytics, Marketing Analytics, Operations Analytics and Financial Analytics. Other elective courses will be added to the program.
