ECON 9013:Advanced Decision Analytics

3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: Admission to the PhD in Business Administration program
This course focuses on the theory and research in operations research techniques, including network optimization and integer programming, which both have wide applications in various business areas, such as production, planning, finance, scheduling, and transportation. Network optimization models and integer programming models tend to have complex and large-scale mathematical structures and to be NP-hard to solve. So this course provides a good opportunity to explore and study how to approach these difficult practical problems theoretically and computationally. An in-depth study of the theories and solution methodologies will be conducted, and the state-of-the-art optimization software will be used. Both the seminal and latest research papers will be discussed. This course also emphasizes the review and evaluation of published research articles and identification of possible application of the methodologies in students’ own research.
