MS&E284 - Data Science of Organizations

Modern organizations are immersed in data and are turning to data science to address a variety of business problems. Yet the challenge to realizing the potential of data science lies not only in the technology, but in the transformation of teams, structures, culture, and processes. In this course we will develop a framework for understanding the structuring and application of data science in organizations, including themes related to organizational change, experimentation, human-in-the loop data products, workforce development, and data literacy. This course is practice-based and experiential and is geared toward MS&E masters students. Students will complete a quarter-long project in an organizational setting.
