Why Good Managers Make Bad Decisions
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
CORE: MS
Why do smart managers make flawed decisions? Why do managers keep believing they have made the right choice, even with disastrous results staring them in the face? Why Good Managers Make Bad Decisions will address how evidence-based management and other decisionmaking tools can be used to uncover hidden assumptions in the corner offices of great corporations.
GEOG
Geographical Sciences Department Site
GEOG170
Introduction to Methods of Geospatial Intelligence and Analysis
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
CORE: MS
Introduction to technical methods used in gathering, analyzing, and presenting geospatial information, addressing the needs of geospatial analysis, such as environmental monitoring, situational awareness, disaster management, and human systems. Topics include basics of locational reference systems, map projections, satellite and airborne remote sensing, global positioning systems, geographic information systems, cartography, and introductory statistics and probability. The course is a gateway to more advanced technical classes in geoinformatics.
