Course objectives
The course objective is to teach the students the principles of mathematical and economical statistics. The course acquaints students with the basic mathematical and statistical methods of data analysis with respect to real applications in economy. The course follows after the basic courses of calculus and information science. The student should acquire also appropriate calculation skills and should be able to solve statistical problems by Excel on PC. It leads to the creating of the essential profile of all students at the School of Business Administration. At the same time it is the base of the university education of further economic courses on the bachelor's as well as the master's study.
