Solutions to many business problems are related to
successfully predicting future outcomes. This course
introduces predictive modelling and provides a foundation
for more advanced methods and machine learning. Therefore the overall modelloing process is discussed in detail.
Students will gain an understanding of the general approach to predictive modelling and then build simple and multiple linear regression models in Python and R and apply these in a range of contexts.
