The course of data science in economics aims to contribute to the student's learning process by providing methodologies for quantitative analyses that are useful for economic and business decisions.
In particular, these learning objectives can be associated with the following expected learning outcomes:
Knowledge and understanding
The course aims to provide the basic methodological and application knowledge of data science. Furthermore, we want to provide useful tools for the statistical analysis of certain types of economic and business data. Finally, great attention will be given to the open source statistical package R.
Applying knowledge and understanding
At the end of the course, the student will also be able to analyze data-bases, including large ones, with modern statistical techniques, with the help of case studies carried out with the statistical software R. The acquired knowledge will allow him/her to critically interpret the economic and / or business dynamics.
