The ability to understand and apply Business Statistics is becoming increasingly important in the industry. A good understanding of Business Statistics is a requirement to make correct and relevant interpretations of data. Lack of knowledge could lead to erroneous decisions which could potentially have negative consequences for a firm. This course is designed to introduce you to Business Statistics. We begin with the notion of descriptive statistics, which is summarizing data using a few numbers. Different categories of descriptive measures are introduced and discussed along with the Excel functions to calculate them. The notion of probability or uncertainty is introduced along with the concept of a sample and population data using relevant business examples. This leads us to various statistical distributions along with their Excel functions which are then used to model or approximate business processes. You get to apply these descriptive measures of data and various statistical distributions using easy-to-follow Excel based examples which are demonstrated throughout the course.

TOP REVIEWS FROM BASIC DATA DESCRIPTORS, STATISTICAL DISTRIBUTIONS, AND APPLICATION TO BUSINESS DECISIONS
This is one of the best courses i have atended since, the exercises are all related to the topic.Great job. .
Thanks to Mr Sharad Borle for explaining very well the content in this course .
Excellent course for someone who wants to learn statistics. This is a fantastic course for a person that wants to learn real world examples rather bogged down with formulas.
The Instructor is awesome. Every content is been introduced simply that anyone can understand. The course will increase your intention towards the statistics in daily life.
I would like to go further in depth of the course for better understanding. I think I have got the topic but still far from understanding its business application.
