Management Science I

Instructor: 
Description: 

The theories and methods of social network analysis have increasingly been harnessed to better understand a diverse array of topics, such as the spread of obesity, the diffusion of innovations, mobility in labor markets, risk-taking behavior in tournaments, and affiliation-based market signaling. This course offers an introduction to the theoretical perspectives and quantitative methods of the network-analytic tradition. A number of key concepts will be introduced, together with opportunities to apply corresponding methods and approaches to measurement using data made available in class. The literature on networks is approached with two goals in mind: (1) understanding the foundations of social network theory and (2) applying methods.
