Moneyball Academy: Training Camp
Taught by Wharton Professor Adi Wyner and guest lecturers, the Moneyball Academy: Training Camp is a one-week introduction to statistics and coding. By the end of the program, students will better understand sports analyses in articles they may read, and will create their own sports analysis project. Students will also learn basics in how to read and write code in R, the advanced statistical programming language used by professional statisticians. Additionally, Moneyball offers the opportunity to learn from and network with other analytically minded people, which can prove extremely valuable as students continue in the sports industry.
“This was a great first step into a topic that I didn't really know much about before. I am now incredibly intrigued and interested in learning more about sports statistics and the role that data analysis plays in shaping a better team.” - Moneyball Academy: Training Camp student
