Overview

An informed understanding of mathematical methods and the skills to make use of them are essential for the aspiring numerate manager of today. An overview of the methods and an awareness of their range and relevance are important parts of a modern education in business management, finance and economics. This comprehensive and user-friendly textbook provides a thorough introduction to mathematical concepts and methods used in the analysis of business management, finance and economics. Much of the coverage is also relevant for students of other social sciences at university level where a quantitative approach is employed. The ten chapters of the book are each carefully designed with a graduated approach to lead students through from a basic level to more advanced concepts and applications, enabling both students and teachers to choose the level appropriate for their course. The text is 'software aware' and most chapters contain illustrative computer programs relevant to the material covered, without making prior knowledge or extensive use of computers a requirement. Student exercises and comprehensive worked solutions are provided throughout.
