ALP 301: Data-Driven Impact

This is a team-based course where students will work on a project to improve a product using data and experimentation. We will cover key considerations for designing and executing high-quality research for product innovation to drive business outcomes and social impact. Students will have the opportunity to apply methods from machine learning and causal inference to a real-world scenario provided by a partner organization. Topics include designing research and experiments, data analysis, experimental and non-experimental methods for estimating the impact of product features, as well as management consideration for the delivery of actionable research. The course involves three weekly meetings: two lectures and one lab. Lectures will focus on research methods and will provide examples of research outputs for students to discuss and evaluate. Labs will comprise technical training in data analysis and structured team meetings. Students will work in cross-functional teams of 5-6 with milest more »
