This is the final course in the Department of Accountancy's analytics sequence. The course is designed to further students' skills in making informed decisions when faced with unfamiliar data sets. We hone the ability to use the tools of average, variance, correlation, sampling, and hypothesis to reduce uncertainty. Upon course completion, students will be able to analyze data that help organizations accomplish desired goals. We prioritize development of critical thinking skills over the ability to use software to perform statistical calculations. We seek to be approximately right rather than precisely wrong.
