MSc Operations Research & Analytics

Course Description

About the MSc programme

The MSc Operations Research and Analytics provides students with the skills needed to apply mathematical methods to real-world analytics problems faced by companies, governments, and other institutions.

With study in practice and theory, you will gain deep insight into analytics problems. On the practical side, you will learn how to model a range of real-world problems using optimisation, simulation, and statistics, using specialist software taught with accompanying computer lab sessions. On the theoretical side, you will learn to recognise canonical underlying mathematical problems, and how to solve them with state-of-the-art methods.

You will also have the opportunity to undertake a Project in Operations Research & Analytics, working in a consultancy role in a host organisation, where you will turn a real problem faced by the organisation into a mathematical model whose solution provides tangible benefit. Alternatively, you may choose to write a Dissertation, supervised by a faculty member.

The programme is designed for students with strong quantitative backgrounds wishing to deepen and broaden their mathematical knowledge while gaining skills in high demand in the marketplace. Graduates are suited for careers in quantitative positions in consultancy, management, finance, government, and business, anywhere in the world.
