# Summer 2020 MBA Calculus Courses - Distance Calculus @ Roger Williams University Accredited Calculus Academic Credits

Summer 2020 @ Roger Williams UniversityMBA students seeking to fulfill their calculus requirement may do so via our Applied Calculus - Math 207 - 3 credit course - which is very popular with MBA-bound students.

Even if your MBA school does not require Calculus, your enrollment application to your MBA school will look stronger with more Calculus courses on your academic transcripts.

For most MBA students, a single course like Applied Calculus will suffice.

For those students planning to go to very strongly mathematical MBA program (e.g. Sloan School of Management at MIT), you will actually need to take the ENTIRE Engineering Calculus sequence!

Please explore these links below that describe more about the types of calculus courses you may wish to take before applying for MBA school, or other graduate programs that historically require Calculus and/or more mathematics prerequisites.

Review: A lifesaver. When I found out I needed a course done in the last weeks of summer I thought there was no way i'd find one available, but this let me complete the course as quickly as I needed to while still mastering the topics. Professor always got back to me very quickly and got my assignments back to me the next day or day of. Can't recommend this course enough for students in a hurry or who just want to learn at their own pace.

Courses Completed: Applied Calculus

Review: I highly recommend this course. I started the Kennedy School at Harvard with a last-minute admission, but my application required the Liberal Arts calculus course, so I had to finish the course in 3 weeks. Diane was an awesome instructor! The class was surprisingly interesting. If you need to take calculus fast, this is the program to use.

Review by: Teddy M.

Courses Completed: Precalculus, Calculus I

Review: Pros: once you get going, you can go really fast. The visual textbook is pretty cool. The instructors were very responsive. Cons: the movies are great, but the software crashes more than it should. Sometimes it is just a hassle doing things in the software instead of on paper, but once I got used to the software, it was ok.
