BUQU 3230

Impress employers with new Liberal Education elective

What employer isn’t interested in making his or her business work more efficiently? A new liberal education elective gives you the tools you need to make better decisions and convince others to implement them. Students from all faculties who need a liberal education elective to complete their program are very welcome.

Led by Stephen Peplow at the Richmond campus, BUQU 3230 Applied Decision Analysis has been specially written for anyone wanting to gain an edge by learning how to improve business efficiency and profits.

The skills you’ll learn include identifying where an organisation could make better use of its resources, working out an optimal solution, and then presenting your findings. To find the optimal solution, we’ll make use of software called @Risk, which is routinely used by some of the world’s best-known large companies. The software isn’t hard to use, and is very intuitive. The types of problems we will work on include: working out an advertising strategy to make the most impact with a limited budget; supply-chain management; and the pricing of airline tickets.
