Base Data and Decisions is a first-year MBA course in statistics and regression analysis. The course is taught using a flipped classroom model that combines extensive online materials with a lab-based classroom approach. Traditional lecture content will be learned through online videos, simulations, and exercises, while time spent in the classroom will be discussions, problem solving, or computer lab sessions. Content covered includes basic probability, sampling techniques, hypothesis testing, t-tests, linear regression, and prediction models. The group regression project is a key component of the course, and all students will learn the statistical software package R.

The Advising Resources Section is made of Inner Sections with Icon Boxes. The column number for the Icon Boxes is determined within the Inner Section by designating the CSS Class (Edit Inner Section Menu > Advanced > CSS Classes) either “two-column”, “three-column”, or “four-column”. The Inner section must be within the Advising Resources Section, which has a CSS class “Advising-Resources”. Custom CSS has been created within the WordPress Theme Customization for this Section, it’s Inner Sections, and it’s Icon Boxes.

Adding additional Icon Boxes will NOT change the column number. For example, if you have 3 Icon Boxes within a ‘two-column’ class Inner Section, it will remain two columns. You must change the CSS Class of the Inner Section in order to change the column number. It is possible to have multiple Inner Sections with varying CSS classes, which will create Inner Sections with different column numbers.

Resources for Research in IO

Empirical Research Pitch Template

Getting started on a new project requires putting something down on paper. This template lays out a series of questions that will likely need to be answered for a project in empirical microeconomics. Students are encouraged to draft answers to sections 1-3 before meeting about a new project in order to jump start our discussion.

Advice for PhD Students

A few bits of advice for PhD students at all levels. Tl;dr take lots of shots; try to figure out what kind of researcher you want to be; strive to learn and don't be afraid to ask for help. See the slides for details and most importantly, links to examples of how to ask for help on technical issues.
