The application of empirical methods to improve decision-making in the fast-moving and complex situations leaders face today is at the heart of the Yale SOM approach. Our faculty are at the forefront of data sciences, including big data, machine learning, and network science, and they collaborate broadly across Yale University. They bring their expertise and passion for data-informed decision making into the classroom.
Students will encounter data analytics in all aspects of the curriculum—from quant-heavy finance courses to projects focused on improving the effectiveness of international aid efforts. They will learn rigorous methods to interrogate the performance of initiatives, teams, and organizations, and answer that pivotal question: How can we do better?
