Data Analysis for Marketing Decisions (DAMD)

Prerequisites

Exchange students must have successfully completed at least one introductory marketing course at their home university. To be able to attend the course they must hand in a relevant transcript/certificate by March 7th, 2021.

 

Course Objectives

Sound knowledge of statistics and data analysis is an essential requirement for marketing research and managerial decision-making – more than one would expect! The present course discusses (a) key concepts of statistics and statistical inference (e.g., NHST, Type I and II error, confidence intervals) and (b) different methods of data analysis (e.g., t-test, χ2 test, ANOVA, regression analysis) in a series of lectures that combine theory, illustrative examples, and hands-on exercises. Although IBM SPSS software is used in the context of DAMD, the course is not a tutorial on the SPSS software package. Rather it focuses on the logic, the implementation, and the interpretation of statistical data analysis in general. Students who successfully complete DAMD will be equipped with the ability to effectively carry out data analysis projects in their later academic and professional career.
