As a student at the University of Phoenix, I’m required to take a Quantitative Reasoning for Business course. This course is to help me develop my analytical skills and to apply the tools necessary to make business decisions as an effective manager. Reviewing the QRB to start preparing myself for economics, accounting, finance, operations, and researchI found that I need to refresh my knowledge on all these topics. On completion of the QRB course I should have the skills necessary to analytically solve problems as a manager.
“The Quantitative Reasoning for Business course prepares you to master these skills before you apply them in economics, accounting, finance, operations, and research” (University of Phoenix, 2008). As I prepare for the future in a challenging role as a manager I must gain an understanding of the Quantitative Reasoning for Business course. Managers that are expected to answer questions or make business decisions need to have strong analytical skills. The QRB will help my skills in the economic field to better understand the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services. Finance and accounting will further my skills of learning how money resources are made available to businesses and how to analyze financial records. Research and the QRB course will also help me gain more knowledge of all the analytical tools necessary for management decision making.
The Quantitative Reasoning for Business course will help me gain all these required skills to become an effective and efficient manager in the business world. Economics, accounting, finance, and operations are the stepping stones for a more clear and understanding of any business situations. On completion of these required courses I should have the skills necessary to analytically and decisively solve problems as a future manager.
