To equip students with basic statistical methods used, show them the relevance of
statistics in functional areas in Business and Economics and familiarize them with
statistical programs used in the business world.
This is an application-oriented course. Main topics are describing and organizing
data, probability concepts, probability distributions, sampling and sampling
distributions, confidence interval estimation, test of hypothesis, analysis of variance
and decision-making.
Having completed the course students will be able to:
 Understand basic properties of data sets and their graphs
 Describe basic traits of data and show the associations between categorical
and quantitative variables
 Gather data and understand basic work on experiments
 Understand and apply probability concepts into business areas
 Construct confidence intervals and run significance tests about hypothesis
 Work with basic applications and software of statistics(Excel)
Students are expected to:
Devote an appropriate amount of time and energy toward achieving academic
excellence.
Take the initiative to ask questions that promote understanding of the academic
subject.
