DDBA 8438 - Quantitative Decision Making for Business Analysis


(3 sem. cr.) This course serves as a research competency component preparing students for research analysis requisite of the final doctoral capstone study as well as professional practice. In this course, students practice using descriptive statistics, statistical inference, and quantitative techniques, including analysis of variance and covariance, multiple linear regressions, and various non-parametric techniques. Students focus on key concepts and issues in the conduct of data analysis in management-oriented social science research, including the role of distribution assumptions underlying hypothesis tests, the computational details of various tests, and the use of readily available statistical software packages. They examine methods of using software for data analysis. This course is not intended for students to become fully grounded in statistical methods; rather, students learn appropriate questions to ask regarding data analysis as well as how to defend their use of specific techniques in professional practice.
