Field Experiments in Organizations - Design and Statistical Analysis-M-

This course introduces students to experimentation in organizations and businesses. This topic has increased considerably in importance since researchers and firms have learned to generate data in more scientific ways. Key to this area of inquiry is the insight that correlation does not necessarily imply causality. In this course, students learn how to use experiments to establish causal effects, and how to be appropriately skeptical of findings from observational data.
