ECON 626 - Experiments & Causal Inference

Unit(s): 2

Experiments are commonly used in software and internet businesses to evaluate product changes, marketing strategies, and other decisions. Expertise in applying experiments in this context is valuable skill that this course helps students develop. We cover fundamentals of causality, experimental design, and statistical analysis. In addition we devote special attention to the particular challenges of experiments in a software business environment. We analyze how these challenges relate to the theory of causality and assumptions of statistical approaches. Students learn to build intuition about these problems using simulation and simple online experiments.
