COURSE COMPLETION
The course-unit credit is awarded on the following conditions (max. 40 points):
- submitting answers to calculating problems and theoretical questions.

The exam (max. 60 points)

Aims

The objective of the course is to learn students with basic principles of mathematical statistics, econometric models, categorical analysis, statistical process control methods and their use in management of company processes.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Attendance at lectures is not mandatory but is recommended. Attendance at exercises is required and checked by the tutor. An excused absence of a student from seminars can be compensated for by submitting solution of alternate exercises.

Recommended optional programme components

Not applicable.
