COURSE DESCRIPTION AND OBJECTIVES
The course will cover inferential statistics, regression modelling and forecasting techniques. It was designed to business school students who have taken an introductory statistics course. In the laboratory component, which is part of the course, you will learn to use Microsoft Excel and a particular statistical add-in package to perform analysis of data. The emphasis is on business applications rather than rigorous mathematics.
After completing this course students are expected to be able to:
(1) Understand statistics as a tool for data analysis.
(2) Apply regression analysis to business data using a simple statistical software (Microsoft Excel).
(3) Understand and interpret the result of regression analysis.
(4) Use several forecasting techniques to predict demand.

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION
It is extremely important to keep up in this class. The course moves very quickly. Students should attempt as many of the problems (exercises) at the end of each chapter as possible. At least one problem representative of each topic covered in the course should be attempted. Suggested problems would include those for which solutions are available in the back of your textbook. Problem formulation and solving are an important aspect of learning statistics. If you are having trouble with any of the topics, talk to the tutors or the faculty immediately.
