The module covers two important and strongly related areas of business analysis: decision analysis and efficiency assessment. The methodologies developed in the module have numerous applications in the private and public sectors. The module is supported by the use of specialised software and spreadsheets.
Principal learning outcomes
By the end of the module, you should be able to: understand mathematical models and methods used in decision analysis and performance measurement; formulate business-related decision problems in a structured form suited to solution by the use of mathematical techniques; apply decision analysis techniques to the solution of the problems using appropriate software; assess the efficiency of organisational units under various assumptions about the operational environment; interpret the results of your analysis and report on your findings in a manner suited to a business context; critically assess the relevance and limitations of the methods; use linear programming for modelling decision making processes.
