Data-driven decisions in finance
The English-language track “Data-driven decisions in finance” is the core of the HSE-Perm “Finance” master program. It's aim is to implement data analysis techniques to provide smart financial decisions, which consist of the following steps:
to identify the task -> to choose proper data and techniques for it’s decision -> automatically collect and analyze data -> to implement the analysis and give recommendations -> to visualize and present results. Stages are united by case studies that are based on real financial data and actual business tasks.
The track is designed in close cooperation with employers and university research centers. This allows to use both practical experience and scientific knowledge, as well as provide courses with unique datasets for cases. The track develops skills of financial decision-making, as well as other modern competencies: business English, programming, data analysis, teamwork.
The track “Data-driven decisions in finance” can be a part of exchange programs with other universities.
In March 2019, the development of the block was supported by a grant from the V.Potanin charity foundation.
