Mathematics are fundamental in every kind of quantitative study of business and economics. Mathematical skills are essentially needed, e.g., in Statistics, Operations Management and Finance. There are no prerequisites except a thorough knowledge of school mathematics, in particular differential and integral calculus for functions of one variable (which, however, will be briefly repeated in the Adjustment course). The tutorial offers all students the opportunity to work on the lecture-topics in small groups guided by experienced students.

Learning outcomes

Academic: the student should demonstrate the ability * to do mathematical calculations such as optimizations and solutions of economical equations which are necessary in further economical analyses. * to mathematize economical problems, that is find mathematical structure in those problems Soft skills: Reading and understanding formal texts (like mathematical formulas in economics), Working in small groups (self study) in order to solve mathematical problems, Presentation Skills (when visiting the tutorial)
