# Winter Session 2020 MBA Calculus Courses Fast for Academic Credits

Winter Session 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.

## Distance Calculus - Student Reviews

Courses Completed: Calculus I

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!

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: I highly recommend this course! Dr. Curtis is the best teacher and is ALWAYS willing to work with you to make sure you understand the subject. It was definitely a positive experience and the credits were transferred to my University with no problems! I definitely do not regret it and I had doubts in the beginning but if I had to, I would do it all over again!
