MBAG 8540 - QuantitatvAnlysis for Business      

Making good business decisions is rarely an easy task. The problems faced by decision makers in today’s competitive, fast-paced business environment are often extremely complex and cannot be solved by intuition and subjective judgment alone. This course is about the use of quantitative methods for making better management decisions. It introduces key mathematical models from the fields of statistics, decision analysis, and management science, describes the purpose of a particular model, explains how to formulate and solve the model, and discusses how managers can interpret the use of the solutions to improve their decision making. The real-world application and managerial orientation of the course is designed to motivate students apply analytical approaches and to help them decide which quantitative tools to use in support of specific decision making situations. Topics covered include cost/revenue models and breakeven analysis, probability and probability distributions, decision analysis, forecasting, regression analysis, linear programming, distribution and network models, project scheduling: PERT/CPM, and waiting line models.

MBAG 8648 - Supply Chain Management      

Supply chain management is unique and, to some degree, represents a paradox because it is concerned with one of the oldest and also the most newly discovered activities of business. Supply chain system activities – communication, inventory management, warehousing, transportation, and facility location – have been performed since the start of commercial activity. It is difficult to visualize any product that could reach a customer without logistical support. Yet it is only over the last few years that firms have started focusing on logistics and supply chain management as a source of competitive advantage. There is a realization that no company can do any better than its supply chain. This becomes even more important given that product life cycles are shrinking and competition is intense. Supply chain management today represents a great challenge as well as a tremendous opportunity for most firms. In this course we will present and explain concepts, insights, practical tools and decision support systems important for the effective management of the supply chain. Our goal is to understand how supply chain decisions impact the performance of the firm as well as the entire supply chain. The key will be to understand the link between supply chain structures and logistical capabilities in a firm or supply chain.

MBAG 8662 - Supply Chain Value Creation      

This course is targeted toward MBA students as well as managers in business consulting and industry interested in operations, supply chain management, and logistics. It covers not only high-level supply chain strategy and concepts, but also analytical tools necessary to solve supply chain problems. The course identifies facilities, inventory, transportation, information, sourcing, and pricing as key drivers of supply chain performance and sustainability, and discusses practical managerial levers and concepts that may be used during supply chain design, planning, and operations to create and improve supply chain value. The strategic frameworks and concepts discussed in this course are tied together through a variety of examples and case studies that show how a combination of approaches is needed to achieve significant increases in supply chain performance, value, and sustainability.
