Statistics for Economics, Accounting and Business Studies
This text is for students taking a first year Statistics for Economics module, and supports students by providing clear explanations of statistical tools and techniques and demonstrating how to apply them in wider business practice.
Do you need to brush up on your statistical skills to truly excel in your economics or business course? If you want to increase your confidence in statistics then this is the perfect book for you. The 7th edition of Statistics for Economics, Accounting and Business Studies continues to present a user-friendly and concise introduction to a variety of statistical tools and techniques. Throughout the text, the author demonstrates how and why these techniques can be used to solve real-life problems, highlighting common mistakes and assuming no prior knowledge of the subject.
This 13th edition of Lesikar’s Business CommunicationDigital World, by Kathryn Rentz, and Paula Lentz brings the contemporary perspective of two expert teachers to Ray Lesikar’s classic textbook. Taking a unique problem-solving approach, it integrates current technologies and trends throughout, while maintaining an emphasis on the fundamentals: careful analysis of the communication problem, development of an audience-focused solution, and clear, correct use of language and visuals. Combined with abundant realistic examples, exercises, and cases, this approach makes Lesikar one of the most pedagogically effective books in the field.
Spread over 19 chapters, this textbook provides fundamental information about International Business, which includes concepts and theories in business and management discipline with highlights on Asian business practices.
This established and popular text is regarded as one of the clearest and most comprehensive in its field. David Eadson has joined Jon Curwin and Roger Slater in the author team, and together they have sought to offer a more compact book with all the qualities of the previous six editions, whilst strengthening the links to online support materials. The new edition has been enhanced to reflect the latest learning plans and techniques, providing students with all the tools they need to pass the typical Quantitative Methods course. Each chapter focuses on a selection of statistical techniques, illustrated with examples from across business, marketing, economics, finance, and public administration, to appeal to students across the business spectrum. Whilst all core material is covered in the book itself, the online offering has been bolstered to include Parts 6-8 covering ‘Modelling’, ‘Mathematical Topics’ and ‘Student Guides’ respectively, in addition to a wide range of other resources including datasets and extra learning tools. Visual signposts throughout the text guide the student to the online platform to provide a seamless interaction between the two thus providing a multi-faceted learning experience. The wide-ranging coverage provided makes this the ideal text for the teaching of quantitative methods across all business disciplines at undergraduate, MBA, and post-experience levels. This textbook is autopackaged with CourseMate. CourseMate brings course concepts to life with interactive learning, study, and exam preparation tools that support the printed textbook and the textbook-specific website. CourseMate includes an integrated eBook and interactive teaching and learning tools including quizzes, flashcards, videos, and more and an EngagementTracker, a first-of-its-kind tool that monitors student engagement in the course.
