## OIT 539: Environmental Science for Managers - Advanced

Fundamental science of ecosystems, climate and energy. Spreadsheet modeling, optimization, and Monte Carlo simulation applied to resource management and environmental policy. Similar to
OIT 338, but allocates more class time to environmental/energy science and implications for management and policy, and less class time to fundamentals of modeling/optimization/simulation.

## OIT 540: Environmental Science for Managers II

This course provides an introduction to renewable sources of electricity and fuel, and is required for the joint MBA-MS in Environment and Resources degree. nnnStudents are strongly encouraged, but not required, to take
OIT 538 or
OIT 539 prior to taking this course.

## OIT 664: Stochastic Networks

Processing network models may be used to represent service delivery systems, multi-stage manufacturing processes, or data processing networks. The first half of this two-unit course consists of lectures on performance analysis (e.g., estimating congestion and delay) for classical product-form networks and for Brownian networks. The second half consists of student presentations of recent papers on managing processing networks, typically with game-theoretic aspects. Prerequisites: Statistics 217 and 218, or consent of instructor; some prior exposure to stochastic models in general, and queueing theory in particular, is useful but not essential.

## OIT 691: PhD Directed Reading (ACCT 691, FINANCE 691, GSBGEN 691, HRMGT 691, MGTECON 691, MKTG 691, OB 691, POLECON 691, STRAMGT 691)

This course is offered for students requiring specialized training in an area not covered by existing courses. To register, a student must obtain permission from the faculty member who is willing to supervise the reading.

## OIT 247: Optimization and Simulation Modeling - Accelerated

The course is similar in content and emphasis to
OIT 245, but is aimed at students who already have background or demonstrated aptitude for quantitative analysis, and thus are comfortable with a more rapid coverage of the topics, in more depth and breadth.

Instructors:
Bimpikis, K. (PI)

## OIT 249: MSx: Data and Decisions

Data and Decisions an introductory course in probability, statistics and decision analysis. Our goal is to teach you how to evaluate quantitative information and to make sound decisions in complex situations. âD&Dâ combines two areas of management science: The first area, probability, provides a foundation for modeling uncertainties, such as the uncertainties faced by financial investors or insurers. We will study the mechanics of probability (manipulating some probabilities to get others) and the use of probability to make judgments about uncertain events. The second area, statistics, provides techniques for interpreting data, such as the data a marketing department might have on consumer purchases. Statistical methods permit managers to use small amounts of information (such as the number of people switching from Verizon to AT&T in an iPhone test marketing program) to answer larger questions (what would AT&Tâs new market share be if the iPhone is launched nationally?)
