About

The Operations Research and Analytics at London School of Economics and Political Science provides you with the skills needed to apply mathematical methods to real-world analytics problems faced by companies, governments, and other institutions.

Overview

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, with 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.
