Section Information for Fall 2022

Business Analytics II at George Mason builds on the ideas from BUS 210 to introduce students to estimation, hypotheses testing, statistical inference, analysis of variance and linear regression techniques.  Using basic tools student learn good decision can be made even with (ever present) variation in data.  In addition, students learn the basics of modeling relationships in data and use time series and linear models to make predictions in business and science.

The course also introduces students to fundamentals of linear programming, a great tool used to solve optimization problems in business made accessible with the functions available in Excel to solve a set of linear equations.
