M5-2 Data Analysis

This course focuses on various multivariate statistical methods used in analysing quantitative data for effective managerial decision making in fields like marketing or management. At the beginning, participants will be introduced to the basics of hypothesis formulation and testing. Next, the lectures cover techniques for multivariate dependence and interdependence analysis. Topics include analysis of variance and linear regression (analysis of dependence) as well as exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis (analysis of interdependence). Computer sessions (including exercises/case studies) using the statistical software SPSS will help the participants to appropriately apply the data analysis methods covered in the lectures to “real world” problems.
