Wharton to Offer Business Analytics Specialization on Coursera

Program to consist of four MOOC courses, plus a capstone project with Yahoo!

The University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School has announced that it will launch a specialization in Business Analytics on Coursera.

The new specialization has been designed to help students understand how to use data to make business decisions in a variety of functional areas. It will include MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) in the following areas:

  • Customer Analytics, which covers customer behavior topics such as descriptive analytics, predictive analytics, and prescriptive analytics.
  • Operations Analytics, which will go into how data can be used to more effectively match supply with demand.
  • People Analytics, covering the role of analytics in recruiting, performance evaluation, leadership, hiring and promotion, job and team design, and compensation.
  • Accounting Analytics, which explores how financial statement data and non-financial metrics can be linked to financial performance.

The specialization will also include a capstone course project, which will delve into a real business challenge faced by Yahoo!, the global technology company.

The first MOOC is scheduled to start on September 15.
