Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Upon analyzing the symptoms and the potential causes for quantitative anxiety, we test a twenty-item scale for measuring quantitative anxiety in MBA students. The scale was administered to a sample of MBA students at four U.S. universities. The 20-item scale yielded a four-factor solution: confidence, usefulness, enjoyment and perceived value. The findings suggest that in general, MBA students, though aware of the value and usefulness of quantitative methods, have low levels of confidence in their ability to use quantitative tools.
