# Winter Session 2020 Enroll Now, Start Today - MBA Calculus Courses 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: Linear Algebra, Probability Theory

Review: I have difficulty learning calculus based math, akin to dyslexia when examining the symbolic forms, equations, definitions, and problems. Mathematica based calculus courses allowed me to continue with my studies because of the option of seeing the math expressed as a programming language for which I have no difficulty in interpreting visually and the immediate feedback of graphical representations of functions, equations, or data makes a huge impact on understanding. Mathematica based calculus courses should be the default method of teaching Calculus everywhere.

Courses Completed: Calculus I, Calculus II

Review: I found the courses to be informative, enjoyable, and most importantly, effective in helping me learn the concepts of calculus. My math skills were always very weak, and I had a great deal of difficulty passing my undergrad math courses. The pace of a traditional classroom setting was just too quick for the concepts to really sink in. With Distance Calculus, I had courses that were taught with the full rigor of an on-campus class, but where I could take my time and really learn the material...all while having access to top-tier instructional help for real math professors and assistants. DC gave me the tools and the confidence I needed, so after successfully passing my DC courses, I moved on and completed a master's degree in CS.

Courses Completed: Calculus I, Calculus II

Review: I needed to brush up on my high school calculus and finally take Calc II before starting a graduate program that needed them as prereqs. This was perfect choice to fit in that summer. Got done at fast pace that I wanted and needed. Also had added bonus of one on one feedback and help when needed. Video lessons were better than many on campus instructors in large lecture settings. Recommend for anyone needing to satisfy prereqs at home institution.
