Algebra for an MBA Student
(Table of Contents)
Khanacademy.org has a wide variety of videos on topics such as example statistics, algebra, geometry, calculus, differential equations, etc. The following discussion describes videos that cover the most important concepts in algebra. You can find these videos about Algebra in the Math category by Subject.
Calculus is the first mathematical hurdle that business degree candidates must overcome.
Some students took a calculus or pre-calculus course in their high school courses. In most cases, this, along with high enough scores on a math entrance exam, will qualify the student to enroll in that math course. However, students who did not take these courses in high school or who are not familiar with the material must take a prerequisite course in algebra or trigonometry at the college level.
Some students who jump right into the demands of arithmetic are perfectly suited to it. For others, making that leap from high school math to college-level calculus is difficult. Students who have not yet taken enough math courses should consider taking a college-level math course or working with a tutor if needed. It is important that students succeed in this difficult math lesson.
What was the least enjoyable aspect of the entry role?
The hardest part of the role was knowing that we would have no choice but to deny entry to a huge team of incredibly intelligent, interesting and worthy people. There were so many places to walk around.
The admission teams for the M7 program met several times a year. Sometimes we’ve shared best practices, talked about new tools (usually related to applicant management), and discussed upcoming MBA outreach events. We definitely want to talk about the trends we see in the candidate pool (of course only in total, no names). On an ad hoc basis, we could always reach out to our colleagues if we wanted to network on anything.
