Excerpt from course description

Mathematics elective


This course gives an introduction to selected topics in mathematics and probability theory..

Please note!

Due to the Corona situation, BI Norwegian Business School has decided that the exam in this course will be changed in the spring of 2020. The course this spring will be evaluated with a home exam which counts 100%. This will be assessed as pass / fail. No one will get a letter grade. 

All students who have registered for the exam in this course in spring 2020 will be registered for this new course and exam code. This also applies to re-sit students.

Re-sit students who prefer to re-sit for the original exam codes, will be able to do so in the fall of 2020, provided the Corona situation is under control. The spring exam will not count as an exam attempt, and will also be free of charge for students. No continuation exam will be offered for this spring's home exam.
