Courses Taught

MBAi 417 Data & Data Intensive Systems

The exponential growth in data, more powerful algorithms and the scalability of cloud architectures enable the world’s most successful companies and create new data intensive opportunities for every organization. In this class we’ll develop strong intuition of the principles driving the modern data ecosystem (database, data transformation, governance, discovery). We’ll explore new cloud architectures for data intensive applications and how they impact companies’ abilities to deliver. We’ll build technical capabilities to develop insights from data and ensure data quality with a robust process for EDA (Exploratory Data Analysis).

We’ll be preparing students to plan, manage and lead effective teams in product & management roles. Each class will be a mix of lecture focused on cases / topics and labs to sharpen skills in using Python for EDA.
