Content

This course is designed for recently enrolled Master students at the School of Business and Economics. The aim is to provide participants with fundamentals of mathematics, probability theory, and statistics which are particularly important in the first semester of the Master program. The course program covers key concepts of basic probability theory, basics of statistical inference, a summary of matrix algebra (e.g., matrix addition and matrix multiplication, eigenvalues), differentiation and integration.
