I took quantitative analysis to fulfill the math requirement for my MBA, took time off, and now they say I need to take regression analysis to fulfill that math requirement under the new rules. OK, then. Are they not the same? From what I gather maybe quantitative analysis is more formulas and numbers, and maybe regression analysis is the written narratives on the analysis of the numbers in essay form.?? As an analogy, is quant: 1+1=2 and regression: "Take the number one and add it to the number one and therefore by looking at the equation, the sum is two. Conclusion: Therefore my conclusion is that the sum of both of those numbers is two." The syllablus says we will use the Harvard Business School Case Study Method for regression analysis to do our work. From what I have been taught, that is essay with a capital "E". Quant class was formulas and numbers only, no essays.
