Bobby's Teaching Page


This academic year, 2013-14, I am teaching three sections of Applied Regression Analysis (BUS 41100) in the Fall Quarter, and one section of Bayesian Inference (BUS 41913) in the Spring Quarter, within the Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago.


2014 Fall BUS 41913 Bayesian Inference


BUS 41913 is a graduate course in Bayesian Inference. The course will focus on understanding the principles underlying Bayesian modeling and on building experience in the use of Bayesian analysis for making inference about real world problems. Particular attention will be paid to the computational techniques (e.g., MCMC) needed for most problems and their implementation in the R language for statistical computing.

Computing: The recommended language for this course is R, which can be obtained from CRAN. Other languages such as MATLAB are allowed but are not recommended. Examples in lecture, and help in office hours, etc., will be exclusively in R.

2013 Applied Regression Analysis (BUS41100) Sections 01, 02 and 85


BUS 41100 is a course about regression, a powerful and widely used data analysis technique. Students will learn how to use regression to analyze a variety of complex real world problems. Heavy emphasis will be placed on analysis of actual datasets, and implementation in the R language for statistical computing. Topics covered include: simple linear regression, multiple regression, prediction, variable selection, residual diagnostics, time series (auto-regression), and classification (logistic regression).
