"The course aims at deepening student quantitative skills by interrelating mathematical modeling and spreadsheet implementation. Students are presented real-world problems encountered in the modern enterprise, with emphasis on spreadsheet computing and are taught both the mathematical background and the necessary structures for tackling the problem with spreadsheets. Emphasis is placed on mutual translation of mathematical model and spreadsheet implementation. Focus is on Business Planning and topics are drawn from Microeconomics, Finance, Marketing, Managerial and Financial Accounting. Mathematical topics covered include: Real numbers and their computer implementation, polynomial, exponential and logarithmic functions, matrices, linear programming and optimization, recursive models, discrete approximation of the derivative and integral. May be taken as Computer Science GER."
