  • Overview

    Rationale And Purpose Of The Module:

    This course is designed to give students the statistical background required to apply statistical techniques to data both of general interest and of interest specific to business activity.
    This involves
    1) presenting data using descriptive measures and graphical means,
    2) presenting hypotheses that can be tested statistically, together with an appropriate interpretation of the test results and
    3) analysing time series data and prediction. In order to deal with large data sets, the lectures are accompanied by computer laboratories using a statistical computer package (SPSS).

Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.

ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
