Prerequisites, courses and content
Marketing students will learn how to market effectively by applying the latest research in the social and psychological sciences and synthesizing these insights with rigorous empirical methods. What makes the courses different from most marketing classes is the emphasis on student involvement, which allows students to specialize and take advantage of the research and teaching opportunities available to them. The areas are diverse and cover marketing: from pricing to decision making, from brand management to consumer behavior, from quant marketing to psychology, from online behavior to in-person interaction, and from online behavior to in-person interaction in real life.
The courses cover the diverse range of marketing techniques which can be used to manage and predict the behavior of a company or consumer, from behavioral economics to Bayesian statistics. Topics covered range from decision theory to regression to Bayesian statistics to data science. These techniques deal with the challenges of gathering data and analyzing it, and providing useful insights into the psychological and social causes of decisions.
The courses also cover the emerging field of predictive analytics, which uses advanced statistical and marketing-level econometrics to model how consumers, firms, and society interact to arrive at highly specific and useful choices. The courses cover these techniques in great depth, including detailed descriptions of their concepts, empirical evidence, and theoretical frameworks.
The courses are intended for individuals with some prior knowledge of economic science or economics and ideally with previous quantitative training.
