<ul><li><p>1 </p><p> University of Mauritius 2014 </p><p>BSc (Hons) Business Statistics with Information Technology - SHE307 </p><p>1. Objectives </p><p>Increasingly, it is being realized that the world is experiencing a data explosion. Data relevant to various aspects of a firms activity such as consumer profiles, customer expenditure patterns and preferences, raw materials sources and costs are routinely being collected and stored in databases accessible to the firm. However, the analytical skills required to fully exploit such data and extract from them strategic information that can provide the firm with competitive edge are often deficient. The programme of study aims to provide students with solid data analytical and IT skills that will enable them to harness todays technology to produce vital information to guide business decisions and their implementations. The curriculum content is designed to enable students to develop packages/ libraries in statistical softwares using computationally efficient statistical techniques which is a facility valued by many researchers in the field of statistics and a number of professions in the public and private sectors including the ICT sector. 2. General Entry Requirements In accordance with the University General Entry Requirements for admission to undergraduate degree programmes. 3. Programme Requirements </p><p>Credit in English at SC/GCE O Level and Passes in two A level subjects including at least a grade B in Mathematics. </p><p>4.

Credits per Year </p><p> As per University Regulation 6.3. </p><p>7. Assessment </p><p>Each module will be assessed over 100 marks with details as follows (unless otherwise specified): Assessment will be based on a written examination of 2 to 3 hour duration (normally a paper of 2 hour duration for modules carrying less or equal to three credits and 3 hour paper for modules carrying six credits) and on continuous assessment done during the semester or year. Written examinations for all modules, except for DE modules and some semester modules, whether taught in semester 1 or in semester 2 or both, will be carried out at the end of the academic year (unless stated otherwise). The continuous assessment will count for 20 30% of the overall percentage mark of the module(s), except for the following modules. An overall total of 40% for combined continuous assessment and written examination components would be required to pass the module, without minimum thresholds within the individual continuous assessment and written examination. The same criterion will apply for modules being assessed jointly. Note that all overall mark for the two modules will be considered and not the individual marks for each of the two modules. Students are required to submit work for continuous assessment by due dates. Failure to do so will normally incur penalties. </p><p> Continuous Assessment Exams </p><p> STAT 2012 Y(3) </p><p>Computational Statistics and Data Graphics </p><p>60% </p><p>40% </p><p>CSE 1049 Y(1) Programming for Statistics 50% 50% </p><p>CSE 1048 Y(1) Computer Applications 40% 60% </p><p>CSE 2050 Y(3) Web Applications Development 50% 50% </p><p>CSE 2049 Y(3) Database and Data Warehouses 50% 50% </p></li><li><p>3 </p><p> University of Mauritius 2014 </p><p>CSE 3049 Y(5) Expert Systems for Business Statistics 50% 50% </p><p> For a student to pass a module, an overall minimum of 40% should be attained in that module, as per University regulations. 8.
