Information
In the MSC in Operations Research students develop and use mathematical and computational methods, which help to evaluate, improve or resolve operational and logistical issues in business or industrial situations. Operations Research can be described as the field of applied analytical methods for decision making in logistical business environments. The programme offers a well balanced curriculum with advanced Deterministic and Stochastic Operations Research courses as well an Applied Operations Research-stream and opportunities for additional elective courses or a practical internship. The analytic, quantitative and critical attitude of Operations Research graduates in combination with their practical focus, knowledge of and skills in OR-techniques appear to be highly appreciated and in demand in business environments (far beyond MBA-students). Accordingly, there are virtually no unemployed OR graduates and job perspectives can be regarded as excellent.
