# MBA Business Calculus Fast Track - Applied Calculus

Many students going into an MBA program need to complete a "single-semester Calculus course for non-majors" to satisfy their calculus entrance requirement.Often these MBA bound students need to finish their course on a

**fast-track**.

Our Distance Calculus courses are designed so that you may start your course immediately, and finish the course as quickly as your academic skills allow. For many students, this means usually about 3 weeks, although some world's records have been set at 9 days!

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.

Courses Completed: Probability Theory

Review: Probability Theory was a great course. Very very thorough. I thought it would never end :). I was very prepared for my coursework in economics. Excellent refereshher of derivatives and integrals - really forced me to remember that stuff from freshman cal.

Courses Completed: Applied Calculus

Review: I took the Business Calculus course from Distance Calculus in 2013. I was admitted to my MBA program, but then they told me I needed to take Calculus before starting the program. I finished the Business Calculus course in about 3 weeks in August before my program started. Not the most fun thing to do over the summer, but at least I got it done. Thanks Diane and Distance Calculus team!

Review: Amazing professor, extremely helpful and graded assignments quickly. To any Cornellians out there, this is the Calculus Course to take in Summer to fulfill your reqs! I would definitely take more Calculus Classes this way in the future!
