Monday MBA Math: Introduction

This post introduces a new weekly feature intended to help prospective MBA students to self assess their proficiency with the quantitative building blocks of the MBA first year curriculum.

Thousands of incoming admitted students each year use the self-paced, online MBA Math quantitative skills course to build a solid quant foundation for the MBA core curriculum.  Also, many MBA applicants complete the course and submit their MBA Math transcript as part of their admissions package.

As a complement to the GMAT's aptitude focus, MBA Math's focus is proficiency with the most MBA-relevant quantitative basics of finance, accounting, economics, statistics, and spreadsheets.

I created the MBA Math course based on years of teaching multi-day pre-orientation quant skills courses at Dartmouth's Tuck School and Cornell's Johnson School.  I also teach second-year consulting practice courses at Tuck and Duke's Fuqua School.

Each Monday, I'll post a sample exercise and a step-by-step solution with audio commentary.  Exercises will cycle through finance, accounting, economics, and statistics, becoming progressively harder with each iteration.
