Minor in Operations Research

Operations Research uses advanced analytical methods for complex decision-making. Applied math, computing, statistical analysis, and optimization are part of the Operations Research toolkit that can be used to solve complex problems that arise in many situations, such as engineering, scheduling, manufacturing, transportation, or healthcare. KSU’s Operations Research Minor is an excellent option for students who would like to learn and apply new quantitative methods for improved decision-making and efficiency.
