A key challenge now facing managers is the interpretation of the vast amount of data generated by computing systems. As these data do not directly answer important business questions, data analysis and statistics must be used to interpret them. Statistics courses develop the skills and insights required to make effective use of quantitative methods. They provide the knowledge needed to select and apply techniques and to communicate statistical results. Interpretation in realistic applications offers guiding examples; theory is used to generate and compare alternative schemes. All courses provide skills that augment substantive managerial abilities, along with exposure to computer software that implements key techniques.
