  • Overview

    Course Objectives
    This course focuses on mathematical modeling of business systems. We aim to improve the students skills on developing optimization models to address decision-making problems arising in a wide range of real-life applications, and the solution of these models with computational tools. We will examine how to formulate effective linear programming and integer programming models, how to use optimization software to solve these models and, possibly, how to interpret the computer output for post-optima

    * Articles from academic journals

    * For almost every week, modeling exercises will be given to students as a homework, and part of them will be reviewed during a class; in this case, some will be asked to present their works in class
    * There will be a team project to investigate the real-world problems and model them.
    * There will be an individual case study presentations in class.
