The ability to forecast data which becomes available at regular intervals is very important in the business environment. With the power of modern computers it is possible to carry out effective short term (one or two periods ahead) forecasts using methods studied in the context of a short course. The course will be very heavily weighted toward applied work rather than the mathematical theory behind the methods. Students will have a portfolio of forecasts at the end of the course to demonstrate competence.
