Math Review Course (MSM 400)
MSM 400 Course Description
This is a non-credit master’s level math class that provides a review of statistics, algebra, and calculus concepts that are considered prerequisit to the program. Topics include sets, differentiation, maxima-minima, partial derivatives, and simple integration. This is especially suited for students with little mathematics background, students who wish to bolster their confidence in their math skills, or students who have not had college-level algebra and calculus in the recent past. Many of these concepts will be used in the core classes, especially STR 401 (Managerial Economics).
MSM 400 Course Details
Math Review is offered prior to the start of every Summer, Fall, and Winter Quarter and will consist of four or five sessions held in the evening. Please refer to the Bursar for the cost of this course. Because there are no grades or credits assigned for this course, it is not covered by the University of Rochester's tuition benefits. The instructor will supply all necessary material for the course.

Math for Management (MSM 491)
MSM 491 Course Description
This is a master’s level math class that is more intensive than MSM 400. Analysis and concepts in modern business analysis rely heavily on quantitative methods. The objective of this course is to bring incoming MBA or MS students "up to speed" with respect to the mathematical and statistical knowledge expected of them. The complexity of the course is on par with (college) freshman year calculus, algebra, and introduction to probability and statistics. Necessary theories and intuition behind them will be covered. The focus of the course is primarily on applications in business, economics, and related areas.
MSM 491 Course Details
Math for Management is offered in the summer quarter only. While it is not included in the credits required for the MBA or MS degree, it will be a graded class to give students an assessment of their mathematical skills. The GPA will appear on the official transcript, but will not be included in the cumulative GPA for the MBA or MS program. MSM 491 is a two credit class, with tuition charged at the current per credit hour rate.
MSM 491 Schedule for Summer 2013
TBD: Begins June 10, 2013 - You may refer to the 2012 Summer Quarter Course Schedule for an idea of date, time, and location details.
