Statistics for Business


This course provides an overview of statistical analysis and inference. The language and methods of statistics are used throughout the MBA curriculum, both in the classroom and in assigned readings. In addition, the language and methods of statistical analysis have permeated much of academic and professional writing as well as media reporting, both inside and beyond the business community. The goal is to present a broad introduction to statistical thinking, concepts, methods, and vocabulary. The course has an emphasis on business applications.
