The advent of big data accelerated by the internet, e-commerce and social media provides opportunities for better business/organisational management and a better society through evidence-based decision-making and the provision of new services and products. This subject introduces the conceptual and practical issues in developing models to aid in decision making in marketing. Students will be introduced to the discovery and analysis of social networks, social trends, and relationships amongst industry factors using spreadsheets and data visualisation software. Students will also translate these analytic models into competitive strategy models by making policy for strategic and other decision recommendations.
