Calculus for MBA - Applied CalculusMBA Programs across the USA vary in their requirements that students should have a calculus course on their academic transcripts before starting an MBA program.
Whether or no your intendent MBA program does require a Calculus course or not, your application to ANY MBA program will surely be enhanced by having a Calculus course on your academic transcripts, thus demonstrating to your desired MBA school that you have a stronger mathematics background.
The Distance Calculus Applied Calculus course is university-level Calculus course which is a "one semester survey of the topics of differential and integral calculus", meeting the base requirement most MBA schools have that require a calculus course of their applicants.
The more mathematics you can demonstrate on your academic records, the more likely chance you will get accepted by your most desired MBA schools. As you know, MBA and Business School programs in general are concentrating more and more on data analytics and financial instruments to make business decisions. Even though math may not be your favorite subject, business of the 21st century demands you become the strongest mathematician you can achieve!

Review: I really enjoyed this course, much more than I thought I would. I needed to finish this course very fast before starting my graduate degree program @ Kellogg. I was able to finish in 3 weeks. I liked the video lectures and the homework process. I highly recommend this course.

Review: My microeconomics class required college-level calculus as a prerequisite, and I didn't want to wait until next year to take the class. So, I took DC's Calculus I class over the summer, so I could register for econ when I got back to school this fall. I actually think I got more help taking the class online than I would have in the huge lecture classes here. Prof. Curtis was really clear in explaining concepts and talking me through the topics that I was having trouble with. It took me about 10 weeks to finish the class, which didn't seem too long and didn't feel rushed. My friends who are in calculus now, trying to finish the prereq, are pretty jealous!
