Quantitative analysis is an important skill in many fields, from professions such as accounting and finance to areas such as investment and business intelligence. Courses which lead to entry into these professions often require students to practice the skill in a series of hypothetical exercises and assignments.
Many students, especially those who have struggled with maths in the past, have difficulty with quantitative analysis tasks. This is because they require the use of more than one part of the brain; the left brain solves logic, order and maths problems, whilst the right brain finds creative ways to express those results, such as in an investment strategy or policy that keeps the bigger picture in focus.
The form of the work that’s produced for a quantitative analysis task depends on the calculation aspects, available data, how advanced the course is and more. For example, if you’re studying accounting, you may be required to produce a sample balance sheet or calculation of financial ratios. For a statistics class, you may be required to manipulate and model data sets using graphical or statistical methods to demonstrate a particular trend. For a finance class, you may be asked to take a combination of different internal and external hypothetical sources, analyse the numbers, and develop a written conclusion about a trend, or perhaps even a strategy that takes those numbers into account.
The experts at MGM Coaching Solutions can assist with any aspect of your quantitative analysis task. All we need to get started is the raw data and the instrument (questionnaire, survey program etc.). If you have prepared written information or a research proposal, we will use this as well to shape the support we give you. Importantly, we can work with a wide range of common statistics and data analysis software packages, such as SPSS, Minitab, SAS, STATA, JMP, GENSTAT, GRETL, S-PLUS, Shazam, XLSTAT, MatLab, and more. Excel coaching is also available, so you can not only get what you need from your raw data, but you can also learn real skills you’ll be able to apply in future research.
We assist with a wide range of processes, including:
- Finding sources of data (if not provided in assignment brief)
- Understanding how to pick the relevant information out of a series or set
- Which mathematical formulae can be utilised
- How to apply a mathematical formula (sample work can be provided as a model)
- Using software such as Microsoft Excel to process data
