  • Overview

    Course Outline:
    This is an extension to the STA1000F/S course, aiming to introduce business and commerce students to intermediate statistical techniques relevant to business and management problems. The emphasis in the course is on applying statistical methods and modelling techniques to data rather than focussing on the mathematical rigor underpinning these methods. Topics covered include: Analysis of variance (ANOVA) and experimental design; revision and extension of simple linear regression; multiple regression; econometric models; time series analysis; and non-parametric statistics.
