The Nature and Role of Statistics in the Business School Curriculum
The purpose of this study was to investigate the statistics curriculum at AACSB-accredited business programs. The results show that 72.8% of the responding universities were providing undergraduate students with the opportunity to take two statistics courses, and 69.3% also provided a graduate level course in statistics. The most commonly taught topics in the introductory undergraduate course were descriptive statistics, probability distribution, hypothesis testing, and tables and charts. The second course tended to concentrate on multivariate techniques.
