Online Session (October 2nd)
The online session starts by discussing the scientific method in general, and then focuses on the core of Business Statistics: hypothesis testing. Next different types of hypothesis testing (one sample versus two sample, average versus proportion) will be discussed, and through an interactive session with voting in Sendsteps several examples are discussed.

  • Overview of the scientific method
  • Core of Business Statistics: Hypothesis Testing
  • Different types of hypothesis testing (one sample vs. two sample, average vs. proportion)
  • Interactive session with voting in Sendsteps

Live Session (November 19th)
In the live session the topic of regression analysis is discussed, again through some interactive voting, to ensure that you are familiar with the basics. Several datasets will be shared, and you will conduct multiple regression analyses on your own laptop in Excel. Advanced software such as SPSS or SAS is allowed, but not required.

  • In-depth discussion on Regression Analysis
  • Interactive voting to ensure understanding of the basics
  • Hands-on analysis of datasets in Excel
  • Optional use of advanced software like SPSS or SAS


Participants are required to watch 2-4 educational videos on the scientific method and hypothesis testing before the online session. To ensure a seamless transition, participants must attend the online session to qualify for the subsequent live session, which delves into regression analysis. Prior to the live session, participants are asked to watch a few educational videos on regression analysis. The datasets that are used during the live session will be shared shortly prior to the session.
