OverviewThis module aims to build on the quantitative material covered in the introductory Business and Management courses MGTU9A1, MGTU9A2 and MGTU9A3 by developing a basic understanding of modelling and some important Management Science models for making decisions with illustrations of how they have been applied in classic contexts. These models include Linear Programming and Simulation. They are supported by some necessary statistical methods to aid decision-taking, for example the testing of means for interpreting simulation results. A further aim is to develop transferable skills. Each core Management Science module will concentrate
on one specific skill. In this module report writing will be a particular feature. The module will also be concerned to develop spread sheet skills (EXCEL) used widely for modelling, graph drawing and databases.
