About

Confidence intervals and Hypothesis tests are very important tools in the Business Statistics toolbox. A mastery over these topics will help enhance your business decision making and allow you to understand and measure the extent of ‘risk’ or ‘uncertainty’ in various business processes. 

This Business Applications of Hypothesis Testing and Confidence Interval Estimation offered by Coursera in partnership with Rice University is the third course in the specialization "Business Statistics and Analysis" and the course  advances your knowledge about Business Statistics by introducing you to Confidence Intervals and Hypothesis Testing. 

We first conceptually understand these tools and their business application. We then introduce various calculations to constructing confidence intervals and to conduct different kinds of Hypothesis Tests. These are done by easy to understand applications.

To successfully complete course assignments, students must have access to a Windows version of Microsoft Excel 2010 or later. Please note that earlier versions of Microsoft Excel (2007 and earlier) will not be compatible to some Excel functions covered in this course.
