Business Calculus Courses for CreditMany students going into an MBA program need to complete a "single-semester Calculus course for non-majors" to satisfy their calculus entrance requirement.
In addition to a calculus requirement, MBA schools also usually require additional financial mathematics courses as a preparatory course before entrace into their program.
Our Business Calculus course is called Applied Calculus - Math 207 - 3 credits - from Roger Williams University in Providence, Rhode Island.
Our Applied Calculus course is a general, liberal arts introduction to Calculus. It is not specifically a "business applications of calculus" course. While some courses and textbooks do exist like this, we believe that we, as mathematicians, should let the business concepts be taught by the business school, and while you are in the calculus course, we simply concentrate on the calculus topics. Otherwise, the course gets too long with lots of applications that "muddy the waters" for the student looking to finish the calculus requirement quickly.
- Calculus I
- Calculus II
- Multivariable Calculus
- Differential Equations
- Linear Algebra
- Probability Theory (Calculus-Based Statistics)
There are TONS of free courses online (some of which are really excellent), but if you plan to formalize your student of Data Science with a degree or certificate, you will want to have all of the above courses on real, transferable Academic transcripts to prove you have completed these courses, with letter grades. There are no short-cuts in building up your credentials as a mathematician for data science.
MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) are awesome, but they do not provide real academic course credit for their courses. If you plan to go for a B.A. or M.A. towards an MBA concentration, you will not be able to say "Oh, I took all my calculus courses from a MOOC" - you need these courses in your academic portfolio.

Review: Course was good and fast. I don't like math so I can't say it was fun or anything. Grader was very nice. Software was ok.

Review: This was a great course. Flexible and informative with a great professor. It's a great option if you need to fill a prerequisite fast or if you enjoy working at your own pace.
