Seminars that Fulfill WAY-AQR

Applied Quantitative Reasoning (AQR)

We make many decisions in life on the basis of large amounts of data, which can be incomplete or otherwise imperfect, and fraught with uncertainties.  Cultivation of this way of thinking will give you a familiarity with actively analyzing complex phenomena, along with a stronger sense of how to predict and alter the behavior of complex systems -- even in the face of uncertainty.

You’ll need to take one course in Applied Quantitative Reasoning (AQR).
