Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2015-2016.

The goal of this hands-on, lab-style course, taught in the Parker Center, is to develop proficiency in quantitative modeling within the environment of Microsoft Excel. Students develop and use spreadsheets to analyze a variety of business problems. The course has two principal components: spreadsheets and models. Spreadsheet topics include principles of good spreadsheet design, the effective presentation of information through spreadsheets (including graphical controls like sliding bars), and advanced Excel features (e.g., data validation, conditional formatting, scenarios). Modeling topics include the art of finding the appropriate level of modeling detail, practice in dealing with vague and unstructured problems, sensitivity analysis, and working with incomplete and unreliable data.

When Offered Fall, spring.
