Business Research Methods Course 29:623:340
 
We identify and locate data sources, consider ways to gather primary and secondary data, perform analysis using the computer, and effectively interpret and present findings. We focus on essential tools for the investigation of business phenomena where chance variation is a factor. The design of experiments, sampling, measuring, prediction, and causation are among the topics discussed. We reexamine concepts covered in the prerequisite statistics course from a more critical perspective. Excel is used extensively to illustrate business research principles including simulation.
