In doing so, students will understand the designs and dynamics that can enhance their abilities to predict outcomes, make decisions, and formulate processes. The course is broken into 20 sections (two sections per week), with each section featuring an hour-long video, readings, assignment questions, and quizzes.

Review: “Coming at the course with a background in engineering and mathematics but no game theory, I found the course an excellent overview of the concepts. Watching the lessons with additional reading was pleasurable and allowed to me to get what I wanted from the course. Scott’s presentation style was engaging and straightforward…I am looking forward to the Scott doing a deeper dive into aspects of this area.” For additional reviews, clickhere.
