I can totally understand your confusion and relate with you because once upon a time, I was in similar situation. Business statistics appear to be so boring and hard subject but believe me, it is not.

Well, to give you a bookish definition, I would say Business Statistics is a branch of mathematics that deals with the collection, analysis, interpretation, and presentation of data in a business context. It is concerned with using data and statistical methods to make informed decisions in various business operations such as production, marketing, finance, and human resources.

Confusing.. right?

Don’t worry I will simplify it for you.

Whether you aspire for a job or business, delivering value to your customer (or boss) will be your ultimate goal.

You can’t really calculate its monetary benefits directly but over the time, you will use concepts of business statistics on daily basis in your personal and professional life.
