The course OR brings to the students mathematical optimization tools being very helpful in business administration. Hence OR can be applied in nearly every module that has at least a partially quantitative perspective. Prerequisite is a thorough knowledge of topics covered in the moduls “Mathematics for IS”.

Learning outcomes

Academic: The students are able to transpose problems of business administration into mathematical models of Operations Research. They solve those problems and identify optimal decisions. Doing this, they have insight into extensions as well as limitations of the applied algorithms. Soft skills: Reading and understanding formal texts (like mathematical formulas in economics), Working in small groups (self study) in order to solve mathematical problems, Presentation Skills (when visiting the tutorial)
