The programme develops students’ analytical, critical and communication skills, which enables them to pursue a variety of jobs related to operational research and risk analysis, in areas such as logistics service provision, retail, banking, procurement/sourcing and supply chain functions, and modern financial product development and pricing.
Operational research, risk analysis, mathematics and statistics are fundamental yet constantly developing subjects. As well as being disciplines in their own right, they form the basis of modern commercial, financial, industrial and technological activities. Mathematical/operational research/statistical models underpin many aspects of operational research and risk analysis today. The secondary aim of the programme is to provide a solid theoretical foundation of operational research, risk analysis and statistics to its students, who will then be able to develop an outlook and powerful methodology that remains valuable in whatever careers they pursue in the fast moving world of business, commerce and finance industry.
