The Business Statistics project was very helpful in that it allowed me to fully grasp the main topics discussed throughout the course by implementing them into a real-life situation. It is a large project, however, and I can offer some advice with hindsight:
· Since this an extensive project I would definitely recommend working with a partner. It is always valuable to have a second opinion and to have two people available to check and edit the work being produced.
· Although it is not required, I advise you to obtain a larger sample. This is important when you calculate your results, for there will be a smaller standard error and the results will be more significant.
· As for topics, make sure you choose one that interests you. It is a good idea to examine events that are currently occurring, whether those happen to be on or off campus. At the moment, a study could be completed on the 4.75% tuition increase that was just announced for the next academic year. What do students think about this? What about faculty and staff? This study would yield very important results.
