Introduction to Management Science
This is a (10 week) MBA level course that covers Linear Programming, Decision
Analysis and Simulation at the
Fisher College of Business, Ohio State University. Yes, its a CORE course. In
MBA core was revised in '96 and this material REMAINS in the core. Given
anti-analytical climate in B-schoools, this is unusual. It is.
If you want to find out about the philosophy of the course click here.
In the new core, Fisher students take 10 weeks of statistics, 5 weeks of decision
analysis, 5 weeks of linear programming and 5 weeks of game theory/industrial
organization. Fisher students, as a consequence, can not only charm their way out
of a paper bag but think their way out as well!
A ten week core Fisher MBA class. The first 5 weeks is devoted to basic micro and the
remainder to game theory and industrial organization.
