Business Decision Analysis

My Distance Learning College


For those involved in business, particularly for those in managerial positions, the ability to make effective decisions or to contribute to the decision-making process is of vital importance.

The ability to use mathematical techniques is becoming an increasingly important part of the manager's "tool kit", especially as low cost and more powerful information technology becomes accessible and enables more sophisticated techniques to be utilized.

The examples and activities utilized within the course will provide some clues as to the range of applications to which Business Decision Analysis (BDA) can be put.
