Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Sound knowledge of statistics and data analysis is an essential requirement for marketing research and managerial decision-making – more than one would expect! The present course discusses (a) key concepts of statistics and statistical inference (e.g., NHST, Type I and II error, confidence intervals) and (b) different methods of data analysis (e.g., t-test, χ2 test, ANOVA, regression analysis) in a series of lectures that combine theory, illustrative examples, and hands-on exercises. Although IBM SPSS software is used in the context of Data Analysis for Markting Decisions (DAMD), the course is not a tutorial on the SPSS software package. Rather it focuses on the logic, the implementation, and the interpretation of statistical data analysis in general. Students who successfully complete DAMD will be equipped with the ability to effectively carry out data analysis projects in their later academic and professional career.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Students’ performance in the course is assessed as follows:
Midterm exam: 25%
Group project: 30%
Final exam: 45%

No material other than a dictonary may be used in the final exam.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

The course has “prüfungsimmanenten Charakter”, therefore attendance is mandatory throughout the semester – more than three absences automatically results in a grade of 5 (“fail”).

In total, a minimum of 50 percent is needed to pass the course. The grading system is the following: 0 to 49% - grade 5, 50 to 59% - grade 4, 60 to 69% - grade 3, 70 to 79% - grade 2, 80 to 100% - grade 1.
Students who fail must repeat the entire course (and must register in the usual way next time the course is offered). No opportunities for make-ups will be offered.

Prüfungsstoff

The midterm exam is based on the topics covered in sessions 1 to 5 and the corresponding book chapters. The exam typically (but not necessarily) involves a combination of single-choice/true-false questions.

The group project is an assignment conducted by teams of 3 to 5 students and involves the analysis of a dataset as well as the interpretation and presentation of the relevant results. The grade of the group project takes into account both group and individual performance and is determined by the overall quality of the assignment weighted by the individual contribution of each member to the group project (as determined by peer-evaluation). Thus, a different grade might be awarded to students belonging to the same team. Detailed instructions will be provided in class.

The final exam covers all topics discussed in the lectures and corresponding book chapters. The exam typically includes questions of different formats (e.g., multiple-choice questions and mini cases with open-ended questions).
