MSc Econometrics and Operations Research: Operations Research (full-time)

Business and economic problems can use several methods to solve them. In the Operations Research track, you will use optimisation techniques, such as algorithms, for this purpose. You will also use computer technologies and programming techniques to reach solutions.

What will you learn?

Operations Research is about using technology but, more importantly, it’s about applying that technology in business situations to solve real problems. The track will give you the means not only to use computer programming to your advantage but also to communicate your proposed solutions to the business decision makers effectively.

At the end of the track, you will be able to:

  • develop and implement software to find solutions for logistical scheduling problems.
  • offer good advice on finding technical solutions to business and economic problems.

Career prospects

Having completed the track in Operations Research, you will be well suited to a technical role, providing decision-making advice and support to management teams. Later, you will be well qualified to take those decisions as a manager yourself.

The internship is an excellent chance to gain work experience in a company, field or industry that interests you. And you never know – you may even be offered a job at the end of it!
