Unit Code: ECN603

Unit Name: Business Statistics

Description: Business Statistics at this level attempts to supplement earlier study of the elements of statistical sampling and other mathematical techniques. While, this course provides opportunities for students to deal with situations involving probability, descriptive and inferential statistics, regression analysis and other basic mathematical tools used by business analysts at their workplaces, it intends to further expand student?s ability and interest into the area of economic research. Though the course may seem mathematical at first there are certain characteristics that distinguish it from any mathematics course. The course provides students with the necessary tools to interpret results rationally. Finally, it provides the basis for a course in econometrics at the higher level.
