Program Description

Master in Game Theory and Operations Research

Saint Petersburg State University

Overview

A two-year master program in game theory and operations research prepares a student for a career in industry, science, and education. The program facilitates learning in modern concepts, techniques, and methods of the game theory and leads the student to understand different functional areas of operations research. The courses are designed to study theory and methods of operations research, game theory, econometrics, applied statistics, decision theory, queuing systems, application of computer technologies in operations research and related topics.

Possible areas of research are applied mathematics oriented at optimization, economic activities, competitive marketing and regional cooperation, multinational pollution planning and resource extraction, joint venturing, network modeling, propagation and epidemic models, etc.

The graduates will be able to make research in the field of game theory and operations research and obtain new scientific results; to analyze problems arising in specific areas; to use quantitative decision-making methods in different fields of human activity, where mathematical modeling can be used; to apply mathematical methods for investigating and solving relevant problems.

The master program is approved by the Association of the European Society of Operations Research at the 27th International Conference "European Conference on Operation research" at the University of Strathclyde, UK.
