About the subject:
Analytical Techniques is designed to familiarize one with fundamental quantitative tools for business decision- making and planning, and to help one think quantitatively about decision and planning problems. Topics include constructing a mathematical model of the planning or decision problem, and analyzing this model with the aid of computer tools to obtain a suggested course of action.
