ran in Fall 2018; will probably run again in Fall 2020

In this class, you'll learn Prescriptive Analytics: how to model real situations as mathematical optimization (minimizing cost, maximizing lives saved, etc.), and the algorithms that computers use to solve those optimization problems. It's incredibly powerful--thousands of variables and constraints in class, and real-world problems can be solved with millions! It's also related to Predictive Analytics via statistical model fitting and machine learning.- Fall 2018 Syllabus
