At the end of this course, in terms of knowledge and understanding students should be able to: have knowledge about basic concepts in statistic; have knowledge of statistical methods for collection, processing and analysis of quantitative data particularly such linked to the field of Economy and Business.

In terms of ability to apply knowledge and understanding, students should be able to: solve decision problems in the economic and business frameworks; assess the role of randomness and variability in different contexts; adopt the most appropriate technique for data analysis; interpret the results and communicate them with the proper language of the discipline; communicate knowledge of statistical ideas effectively.

Written and oral examination. The admission to the oral exam requires to pass the written exam. The final grade is obtained as an average of the written and oral examinations.

The written test consists of 20 questions/exercises based on the whole exam program. The oral test verifies student communication skills, their ability to apply methods and their ability to adopt the proper language of the discipline.
