The Quantitative Methods Workshop is a non-credit course intended to provide the graduate student with a review and/or introduction to many of the mathematical techniques and applications likely to be encountered in the working world, and is useful to professionals who need to brush up on these skills. Successful completion of this workshop satisfies the MBA quantitative methods prerequisite. 

Course of Study
Overview of algebraic topics including exponents, solving equations, functions, graphics of linear and quadratic equations, solving systems of equations, logarithms, and other topics as they may arise: 

    • decision making 
    • financial mathematics, including present and future value 
    • annuities with applications 
    • basics of linear programming, including graphical approach and the Simplex method 
    • emphasis on business applications 
    • derivatives and applications of the derivative, including optimization, curve sketching and business examples 
    • the integral and application of the integral 
    • multivariable calculus, including optimization, with applications 
    • brief overview of selected topics in statistics 

Program Format
The course is online and on-demand, meaning you can start whenever you want and move through at your own pace! The course also adapts to your level, meaning that you will not be forced to complete work on concepts you have already mastered. As such, some students may progress through the course faster than others. An OU faculty member will be facilitating the course, and is available to answer questions and help students with problem areas. 

Cost: $750, which includes access to a comprehensive online textbook that students retain access to for two years. 

It is expected that attendees have mastered (at a minimum) elementary-intermediate Algebra concepts. These will be covered to some extent in the course, but will not be the focus. Students who need more help with the lower level Math concepts will be referred to additional resources by the instructor.
