Courses Taught

Quantitative Analysis for Business Decisions. Broad coverage of statistics and quantitative managerial techniques for business decisions. This course focuses on the concepts and the use of statistical and mathematical models for economic and business problems.

Production/Operations Management. The analysis and design of production/ operations systems in a decision-making context. Topics included demand forecasting, plant capacity planning and location, plant layout, job design and work measurement, inventory planning and control, quality control, and JIT concepts.

Business Statistics. Topics included level of measurement for numerical data, frequency distributions, probability concepts and applications, central limit theorem, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, independent/dependent samples, ANOVA, simple and multiple linear regression, and time series analysis.

Operations Research/Management Science. Topics included linear/nonlinear programming, integer programming, dynamic programming, transportation problem, assignment problem, network models, project scheduling (PERT/CPM), inventory control models, decision analysis with and without probabilities, simulation, and Markov analysis.

Project Management. Concepts and theories used in managing a project throughout the entire cycle including activities in selection, definition, initiation, planning, execution, monitoring, control, completion and post-implementation review.

Business Policy and Strategic Management. The applications of business environments to formulate the relevant strategies and policies, including an analysis of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of the firms, formulation and evaluation of competitive strategies and policies with existing resources.
