Data Science for Leaders equips senior executives with the aptitude to harness data science and business analytic insights to inform business decisions, strategy, execution, and more effective organizational leadership. Executives need to possess this critical and evolving knowledge foundation to optimally leverage the information produced for and by their data science teams in delivering business solutions based on analytic insights.

Uniquely designed for the demanding schedule of senior executives, Data Science for Leaders moves participants through a three-day applied, intensive, boot camp which includes a mix of lectures, case studies, laboratory practice, and panel discussions.

Esteemed Haas faculty, Lucas Davis and Jonathan Kolstad, lead senior executives through the process of learning and applying the leadership principles behind the applications of data science methods. At the forefront of the nexus between data science and business analytics, Professors Davis and Kolstad draw on their robust research and industry engagement to define the capabilities, challenges, and decisions executives must make every day in leading an organization.
