Applied Business Research & Statistics – qnt561 (3 credits)

This course prepares students to apply statistics and probability concepts to business decisions. Students learn important criterion for developing effective research questions, including the creation of appropriate sampling populations and instruments. Other topics include: descriptive statistics, probability concepts, confidence intervals, sampling designs, data collection, and data analysis--including parametric and nonparametric tests of hypothesis and regression analysis.

This graduate-level course is 6 weeks. This course is available to take individually or as part of a degree or certificate program. To enroll, speak with an Enrollment Representative.
