Pre-MBA homework

Once I departed the United States and had irregular and unreliable internet access Georgetown decided to give us all the summer homework assignments. Luckily I managed to squeeze in the easier career assignments in Jaipur, and got a start on the math assignments.

Georgetown (McDonough) as well as American (Kogod), Arizona (Eller), Arizona State (Carey), Ashridge, Aston, Auburn, Azusa Pacific, Babson (Olin), Bentley (McCallum), Boston College (Carroll), Bridgeport, UC Berkeley (Haas), UC Irvine, UCLA (Anderson), Cal Lutheran, Canterbury (NZ), Carnegie Mellon (Tepper), Chicago, Colorado State, Columbia, Cornell (Johnson), Dalhousie, Dartmouth (Tuck), DePaul (Kellstadt), Duke (Fuqua), Edinburgh, Emory (Goizueta), Florida (Warrington), George Washington, Georgia Tech, Hartford (Barney), Harvard, Hawaii (Schidler), HEC Paris, IMD, Indiana (Kelley), INSEAD, Johns Hopkins (Carey), London (LBS), Loyola, Maryland, Michigan (Ross), MIT (Sloan), Mississippi State, Monash, Morgan State, UNC Chapel Hill (Kenan-Flagler), NC State, Northwestern (Kellogg), Notre Dame (Mendoza), NYU (Stern), Oregon Executive, Oxford (Said), Penn (Wharton), Penn State (Smeal), Pepperdine (Graziado), Phoenix, Rice (Jones), Rochester (Simon), St. Louis (Cook), Saint Mary, Santa Clara, SDA Bocconi Milan, Southern Methodist (Cox), Stanford, Strayer, SUNY Empire State, Temple (Fox), UT Austin (McCombs), UT Dallas, Thunderbird, Toronto, Vanderbilt (Owen), Virginia (Darden), Wake Forest, Wales, Warsaw, Warwick, Washington (Olin), Webster, Widener, William and Mary (Mason), Wisconsin Madison, World Trade, and Yale) according to the website use MBA Math.
Georgetown requires incoming students to complete the statistics and finance modules, and score 75% or above on the post-lesson test. We are also encouraged to use the other resources in the program. In addition, we are required to study the first two chapters in our accounting text and first five chapters of the statistics book.
All this work is making me quite happy I quit my job as early as I did. Last summer I was coping with a promotion and longer hours at work while studying for the GMAT and other application prep. This summer I can at enjoy most of my days before tackling the homework.
Time to get back to work. I need to recall the years of statistics that have been hiding in the recesses of my brain in the next few weeks. Good luck to everyone else with their prep work!

i'll be at UT (mccombs) in the fall and they have sent all of us a log-on to MBAMath. we're encouraged to take advantage of the resource, but have no formal requirements to submit quizzes or do other pre-orientation homework... at least not that i'm aware of :) sounds like y'all are very busy!

Love the blog. I had a question about mba math. I'm planning on applying to Georgetown this year R1. My gmat score is not stellar. 660 (84%) 39V(89%), 42Q(62%). I'm considering taking the MBA Math program on my own, and showing I can handle the Georgetown math.

Do you think this is worthwhile? Also, how long does it take to work through all the mba math coursework?
