Subject outline

This subject aims to provide you with a strong foundation in quantitative skills for effective managerial decision-making. Throughout the subject the emphasis will be on two areas:learning conceptual knowledge through modelling and problem-solving (using manual and computer application software) and critical thinking through application of these models in case analysis and discussion. Quantitative techniques and concepts have had a dramatic impact on managerial decision-making in finance, marketing and operations by assisting the manager in the process of making scientific, informed and rational decisions. It is common for decision makers in the modern business world to be overwhelmed by the vast amounts of data that accumulate on customers, products, markets and internal operations. It is therefore important that they familiarise themselves and become comfortable and competent in data analysis and modelling tools.
