Business Quantitative Studies

Message from the Chair 

Welcome to the Business Quantitative Studies department, more affectionately known as "BUQU".

Our Course

Business Statistics and Business Mathematics help students acquire the analytical, technological and problem solving skills they will need to solve real world business problems and better understand personal finance and business decision-making. For example:

  • If presented with two business offers, how do you determine which is the best offer to take?
  • How does a firm determine if their product or service is preferred significantly more by consumers than the competitor's?
  • If you put aside $25 a month starting now, will you have enough money to retire at age 65?
  • What is the likelihood of winning the lottery? (Well this one is not really a business application, but it is still worth knowing!)

Our faculty aspire to make the student learning experience a "significant" one.  We aim to teach students skills that extend beyond the course content; these skills include critical insight, information literacy and integrity.
