MBAP5042 - Quant Skills Calc Based Inter
Fall 2011

The pre-MBA quantitative skills course examines essential topics of algebra and differential calculus that are applied to quantitative coursework in an MBA program. Among the algebraic topics covered are equalities and inequalities, absolute values, functions and graphs, linear, nonlinear, and multivariate functions. The course also examines systems of equations and breakeven analysis, laws of exponents, quadratic equations, natural logarithms, and exponential functions. The calculus topics covered are limited to differential topics. Students develop the ability to differentiate functions using the power, product, quotient, and chain rules. The differential calculus is applied to determine optimal solutions to case problems. Students in this course use CD-ROMs to investigate many of these topics. Students who benefit most from this course are those who have been away from quantitative courses for a period of time and whose calculus and algebraic skills need to be refreshed. Students with very weak backgrounds are likely to be better served by enrolling in selected undergraduate courses.
