Statistics is an important skill to have in work and in life. Statistics allow you to evaluate and analyze data at a deep level. In relative to shares in a company and in business in general, knowing the data can be the difference between a bad decision and a good one. A good decision, being one that makes a profit. By utilizing statistics you can improve other people lives. I see myself taking statistics with me, into the business world. There i can read between the data and capitalize on ideas that were not thought of before. Ultimately, being able to analyze the meaning behind numbers and data, is important enough to learn statistics.
