开展暑期课程:MANAGERIAL DECISION MAKING

 

课程介绍:Decision-Making is one of the most important functions of management. In todays business environment it is characterized by continuous change, large amounts of data, and the huge penetration of information and telecommunications technology. In this environment, decision making is increasingly based on the use and analysis of data, through the development of models, and the use of user-friendly, PC-based computer packages. Many of these models try to come up with an optimal decision, under the assumptions provided.

This is what this course is all about. The emphasis of the course will be on understanding the methodology for making decisions, understanding and formulating complex problems, as they appear in todays business environment, developing the appropriate decision models, and using them for effective decision making. Three major categories of decision models are covered: Linear Programming, Integer Programming and Decision Analysis. In each unit, the student is exposed to a number of applications, as well as a specific case study.

In addition to developing models, the student is exposed to computer packages, based on Excel, to use in order to solve the problems.
