Use the assessment to check if you are ready for MHA 601 now or if you should first improve your chances of getting a passing grade in MHA 601. A self-study or taking an undergraduate Introduction to Statistics course can prepare you for MHA 601 and 604.
In the past, some students entered MHA 601 without sufficient knowledge of the most basic statistical concepts. Because the course is only 8 weeks long, it is hard, or even impossible, for students to complete MHA 601 requirements without at least some pre-existing knowledge of introductory statistics. MHA 604, a second course about making data-based decisions, builds upon MHA 601. A low passing grade in MHA 601 may mean a mighty struggle in MHA 604.
The faculty of CMU’s MHA program strongly believe that all students should enter the course prepared to learn. They also know that adult learners have different backgrounds and starting levels. This assessment will help you decide what’s right for you.
