Large and complex amounts of data are nowadays produced by many different human, commercial, and industrial activities.

This wealth of information is the basis for descriptive, integration and visualisation methods that improve our knowledge on multifaceted phenomena, predictive models for forecasting future trends, prescriptive models for suggesting feasible actions, and methods for impact evaluation.

The above models, methods and algorithms extract useful information from data and enable decision-makers to take decisions that are effective in uncertain situations by offering a fuller consideration of the available options and estimates of the risks.

Analytics and Data Science for Economics and Management provides the knowledge and the skills to deal with the mathematical, statistical and computational aspects of digital data processing and the understanding of how to approach economic and management issues.

The course is aimed at students who have a keen interest in using quantitative data analysis to extract strategic insights for businesses, private and public organisations in which they operate.

Students will learn how to model and interpret complex phenomena and to develop sophisticated evidence-based answers to relevant questions in the fields of economics, marketing, management control, business intelligence and social sciences.

The students will acquire the necessary combination of economic and quantitative knowledge to interpret problems and to play a key role in their solution.
