MS&E 234: Data Privacy and Ethics

This course engages with ethical challenges in the modern practice of data science. The three main focuses are data privacy, personalization and targeting algorithms, and online experimentation. The focus on privacy raises both practical and theoretical considerations. As part of the module on experimentation, students are required to complete the Stanford IRB training for social and behavioral research. The course assumes a strong technical familiarity with the practice of machine learning and and data science. Recommended: 221, 226, CS 161, or equivalents.
Terms: Win | Units: 3

MS&E 235: Network Structure and Epidemics (MS&E 337)

Explores the underlying network structure of social, economic, and technological world using techniques from graph theory and economics, as well as machine learning and data analysis. Prerequisite: 226, CME 195, or equivalents. Recommended: 212.
Terms: Aut | Units: 3

MS&E 240: Accounting for Managers and Entrepreneurs (MS&E 140)

Non-majors and minors who have taken or are taking elementary accounting should not enroll. Introduction to accounting concepts and the operating characteristics of accounting systems.

MS&E 245A: Investment Science

Basic concepts of modern quantitative finance and investments. Focus is on the financial theory and empirical evidence that are useful for investment decisions. Topics: basic interest rates; evaluating investments: present value and internal rate of return; fixed-income markets: bonds, yield, duration, portfolio immunization; term structure of interest rates; measuring risk: volatility and value at risk; designing optimal portfolios; risk-return tradeoff: capital asset pricing model and extensions. No prior knowledge of finance is required. Concepts are applied in a stock market simulation with real data. Prerequisite: basic preparation in probability, statistics, and optimization.
Terms: Aut | Units: 3-4

MS&E 245B: Advanced Investment Science

Formerly MS&E 342. Topics: forwards and futures contracts, continuous and discrete time models of stock price behavior, geometric Brownian motion, Ito's lemma, basic options theory, Black-Scholes equation, advanced options techniques, models and applications of stochastic interest rate processes, and optimal portfolio growth. Computational issues and general theory. Teams work on independent projects. Prerequisite: 245A.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3
Instructors: Giesecke, K. (PI)

MS&E 246: Financial Risk Analytics

Practical introduction to financial risk analytics. The focus is on data-driven modeling, computation, and statistical estimation of credit and market risks. Case studies based on real data will be emphasized throughout the course. Topics include mortgage risk, asset-backed securities, commercial lending, consumer delinquencies, online lending, derivatives risk. Tools from machine learning and statistics will be developed. Data sources will be discussed. The course is intended to enable students to design and implement risk analytics tools in practice.
