Many students have a fear of studying Statistics & Mathematics. The objective of this study is to highlight the
methods that could help students to improve the learning of Business Statistics. This paper could also provide a
useful input for teachers who can benefit from knowing what methods improve student learning of Business Statistics based on the personal background of students (for e.g. whether they had studied Statistics before, whether
they use Statistics in their jobs etc.) and their preferences.
This research work also documents the comparison of how teaching and learning methods differ in reality and in
preference when students had studied statistics in past and when they had not attended any course of Statistics in the
past. The empirical analysis in this research is based on the data collected from 81 correspondents who are
registered in a part time course in MBA or in MA (HRM).
