The stuff of management science can seem abstract, and students sometimes have trouble perceiving the usefulness of quantitative courses in general. Part of the problem is that the examples used in books often do not seem realistic.
For this course, the main goal is to demonstrate solutions to various problems that managers face every single day. From maximizing profitability, minimizing transportation costs, to optimizing employee scheduling – this course will provide you with a hands-on approach to dealing with management science models and techniques.
There is no mathematical programming in this course or learning complex formulas, as we will use Microsoft Excel as an aid to solving various common business scenarios that you encounter at the workplace.
