This course, taught in english, is designed to develop both the ability to quantitatively analyze very large-scale practical problems in management science and to interpret and understand quantitative results in order to perform a more informed decision-making. Its aim is to introduce a broad range of optimization concepts and associated quantitative techniques with a view to helping the student appreciate the merits and limitations of these techniques as well as the data and technical requirements involved with their use.
The course includes the following topics:
  1. Introduction to Quantitative Decision Making Tools
  2. Large Scale Optimization: From Theory to Solutions
  3. Projection, inverse projection, and their applications
  4. Models and methods for Data Envelopment Analysis, Pricing, Location, Partitioning, Routing, Transportation and Network Design
  5. Case studies
  6. Brief introduction to integer optimization methods for machine learning
