About the course

Create models that answer executives' questions, produce compelling analyses, and ultimately gain commitment.

Decision models are created to generate insights that can guide and inform strategic decision-making. This class will equip you to answer questions including, which strategic alternative creates the most value? Why is it better than the others? How much risk does it entail?
