The course is an introduction to quantitative methods and their applications to management problems.
It involves the study and application of various mathematical techniques in optimization of scarce
resources, particularly those that will help management make sound business decisions.
It includes the analyses, manipulation and interpretation of data and facts. The approach consists of
problem definition, model development, data collection, model implementation using the data, model
validation,result analysis, and using the findings to make managerial decisions.
COURSE OBJECTIVESThe course aims to develop and enhance the student’s ability to analyze, interpret
and make use of mathematical tools and models in making effective business decisions.
After completing each chapter, the student should be able to:
1. Identify the key features of the technique
2. Define and use the terminology
3. Solve typical problems
4. Recognize applications of the concepts and techniques covered
5. Discuss the relevance, managerial considerations, advantages and limitations of the quantitative tool.
