Course Description

Welcome to this course Business Statistics.

Statistics are an important tool for running a business effectively. Managers, especially CFOs are required to take decisions based on data collected over time. This data is useless unless it is analyzed and interpreted; Statistics enables the business managers to analyze the data and arrive at meaningful conclusions.

Statistical analysis allows businesses to deal with the uncertainties of the business. It allows managers to make sound judgments, knowing their decisions are based on data and not on assumptions.

Statistics is not only applied in the field of Management, Commerce, Economics, Social Sciences, Mathematics and so on, but also in our life like Public Services, Defence, Banking, Insurance, Tourism, Hospitality, Police, etc.

Statistics plays a very vital role in enriching a specific domain by collecting data in that field, analysing the data by applying various statistical techniques and finally making statistical inferences about the domain.

Gone are the days, when the managers used to make decisions on the basis of hunch, intuition, trial and error. Now a days business environment is highly complex and most of the decision making process rely on quantitative techniques which are nothing but combination of statistical methods.
