MBA 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!

Courses Completed: Calculus II
Review: I took Calculus II through Distance Calculus and can't recommend it enough. Being able to take the course at my own pace while I was working full time was tremendously helpful, especially since I hadn't taken a math course for 5 years prior. The instruction was excellent and the software they used to teach the course was intuitive and facilitated the learning process very well. This calc II class enabled me to take multivariable calc, linear algebra, and real analysis at Harvard University's extension school, which ultimately qualified me for the economics PhD program that I will graduate from next year. 8 years on, I'm still grateful to Professor Curtis and Distance Calculus.

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!
