SYLLABUS MANAGEMENT 2250-TS1 MANAGEMENT STATISTICS SPRING, 2010 MONDAY, WEDNESDAY & FRIDAY, 10:05 AM - 10:55 AM TECHNOLOGY SQUARE 200 INSTRUCTOR: Dr. Stuart Milne 495 Technology Square (Management) (404) 894-4930 stuart.milne@mgt.gatech.edu Office Hours: M, W, F: 9:00 AM – 9:30 AM; 1:00 PM – 1:45 PM; or By Appointment COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course will present the student with an overview of the general principles and applications of statistics relevant to management. A key function of management is to make decisions, and contemporary managers are confronted with ever increasing amounts of information as they attempt to do so effectively. An understanding of statistics is invaluable as they consider what information is relevant and how that information might best be used to achieve their goals. A grasp of statistics is also important as managers consider the validity and desirability of proposals others make to them from both inside and outside their organizations. Knowing and understanding general principles and formulas, however, are not enough to make one an effective manager. He or she needs to be able to apply this knowledge to the specific situations encountered on a day-to-day basis. A major emphasis of this course will be to aid and encourage students to begin developing these skills through practical problem solving. While the knowledge and understanding of principles can be accomplished largely through the textbook and lectures, skill in applying these principles can only come through "hands-on" types of educational experiences. For this reason, it is very important that students be prepared to participate as fully as possible in classroom activities in order to gain maximum benefit from this course. COURSE TEXTBOOK: Bowerman, O’Connell, Orris, & Porter Essentials of Business Statistics , 2 nd Edition , 2008, Irwin: McGraw-Hill. Please note that the textbook should come with an accompanying CD. CALCULATOR REQUIREMENT: You will need to bring a basic calculator to all class sessions and exams. 1
