Course summary

Operational Research has been briefly described as the "scientific analysis of decisions". It's concerned with assisting and advising decision-makers in a wide variety of settings.

This distance-learning degree aims to realise the potential of graduates, so that you immediately can play an effective role in providing model-based support to managers helping them to make better decisions at an operational/technical level.

You will develop a rigorous academic understanding of advanced analytical methods that are used to provide structured and analytical approaches to decision-making. You will also develop practical skills in using operational research models to support decision-makers.

All classes are taught using material presented via the internet. Classes are supported by faculty members who also teach on the full-time course. They will guide and support discussion via discussion forums.

Assessment

Each class includes two pieces of assessment. Around half of these will be assignments and the other half will be by examination at local centres. On completion this course leads to PGDip in Operational Research (online).
