MBA Operations Research Concentration
The Operations Research concentration draws upon our history of excellence in the area of quantitative decision making. During the 1950s, researchers at Carnegie Mellon University pioneered a revolutionary new approach to business management known as management science.
Our practice of applying analytical, quantitative decision-making techniques to management has since been adopted by virtually every leading B-school in the U.S.
The study of Operations Research provides a powerful career advantage in which students master frameworks for building descriptive, predictive and prescriptive models, using tools from statistics, data mining, machine learning, and mathematical optimization.
