Statistics, BS

A key challenge facing managers is the interpretation of the vast amount of data generated by computing systems. As these data do not directly answer important business questions, managers must use data analysis and statistics to interpret them. Statistics courses develop the skills and insights required to make effective use of quantitative methods, select and apply techniques, and communicate statistical results. All courses provide skills that augment substantive managerial abilities, along with exposure to computer software that implements key techniques.
