Quantitative Methods for Business

Fifth Edition

Donald Waters

Managers in every organisation use quantitative methods.  One of their essential skills is the ability to understand numerical information and use it for decision making.  Not surprisingly, management students do a course in quantitative methods, typically with names like quantitative analysis, decision analysis, business modelling or financial methods.  This book gives an introduction to methods that are widely used in business, which every student of management will meet somewhere in their course.  Whether you are studying for an HND, a first degree, an MBA or postgraduate degree, or a professional qualification, the book covers key topics in an easy to follow and practical way.

Quantitative Methods for Business, fifth edition, is divided into five parts which develop the subject in a logical sequence.

  • Part One introduces the subject, asks why managers use quantitative methods and reviews essential quantitative tools.
  • Part Two describes data collection and description, showing how to select and present information reliably.
  • Part Three looks at specific types of management problem that are invariably tackled using quantitative methods, such as financial analyses and forecasting.
  • Part Four introduces the ideas of uncertainty, focusing on probabilities, the elements of statistics and sampling.
  • Part Five shows how statistical ideas are used in decision making, quality management, inventory management and other areas.

Key features

  • No previous knowledge or experience assumed, enabling you to study at your own pace.

  • Worked examples illustrate key principles needed to grasp the subject.
