OUR MSBA COMMUNITY

“We focus not only on the techniques, but also what’s relevant when you carry the tools to the real market. When you run an experiment in the field, you will encounter difficulties. So, when applying the tools to the field, what is the messiness that you need to account for?”
Tesary Lin
Assistant Professor, Marketing
“When we allocate our resources better as a society, we’re better off as a society. We’re more efficient and you can’t be efficient without analyzing the data and making data-driven decisions.”
Andrey Fradkin
Assistant Professor, Marketing
