Business Analytics for time series data using R

Programme Dates: 04 Dec 2024 - 06 Dec 2024

Format: In-person

Duration: 2.5 Days

Programme Dates: 30 Nov 2024 - 14 Dec 2024

Format: Live Virtual (Weekends)

Duration: 5 Days


Time Series Analysis Technique is very essentials for Business Forecasting. The MDP aim is to impart knowledge of advanced analytics, particularly in Finance & Economics. Various predictive models will be considered in the workshop, including Moving Average, Regression, Exponential Smoothing and ARIMA, Seasonal ARIMA. These models are highly useful for practitioners and researchers to predict returns and volatility in time series data. The inferences drawn from prediction models will facilitate market researchers, data analysts and managers to evaluate and implement the best alternative strategy.



The objective of this program is to provide researchers, academicians, and industry practitioners with an instinctual understanding of time series modelling. This program would emphasize a broad range of techniques for time series data through hands-on-training to the participants in order to equip them with requisite knowledge and skills to draw meaningful insights using R.


Learning Outcomes

Participants will be able to describe and verify mathematical considerations for analyzing time series, including concepts of white noise, stationarity, autocovariance, autocorrelation, verify the properties of linear predictor operator, and apply various linear forecasting techniques,  apply various techniques for the modeling: including parameter estimation, assumption verification, and residual sequence diagnosis, apply various techniques of time series models, including the seasonal autoregressive moving average (SARIMA) models, regression with ARMA models using R.



Delivering the content would involve a well-balanced combination of virtual classroom lectures, practical hands-on sessions with Excel and R including case base teaching.


Who May Attend?

The program is suitable for managers at various hierarchical levels who want to better understand Time Series Modelling and its impact in their daily operations. The course is addressed to corporates, executives and academicians.
