Managerial Decision Analysis is designed for entry level through high level managers who either provide input to or are responsible for managerial decisions based on solid logic and analysis. The course presents an introduction to the statistical and management science techniques that are most commonly used by managers in both the public and private sectors. We build the course providing tools you may find useful for your team project which may either be a consulting project addressing a real issue in a not-for-profit or for-profit entity or focus on a current topic of interest to a segment of the business community. By the end of the course, students will be able to understand the role of quantitative methods in the decision-making process; demonstrate the ability to visualize, present, analyze and interpret business data; develop an understanding of the application of quantitative analysis to the solution of management problems; and utilize spreadsheet analysis as a tool in analyzing data and developing a solution/recommendation to a problem situation.
