The Centre for Outreach and Digital Education (CODE), IIT Madras, has launched a 6-month certificate course on Operations and Supply Chain Analytics for Strategic Decision Making for Industry Professionals. A good understanding of uncertainty and its impact on optimal decision making is critical and a good manager needs to be skilled in decision making under uncertainty. This program focuses on building these analytical skills (such as optimization, game theory, probability theory, statistical modeling, etc.).
About the Course
The program focuses on building analytical foundations initially and then takes a deep dive in various practical applications, thereby offering a comprehensive perspective on most of the operations and supply chain problems faced by industry today. For example, operations decisions such as inventory optimization, supply chain management, network design, logistics planning, services management can be analyzed mathematically. The same analytical tools are relevant in various sectors including manufacturing, healthcare management, retail, logistics, public policy, and agriculture.
This program assumes basic understanding of mathematical and statistical concepts. Though there is no prerequisite for any particular educational background, it is expected that the participants have interests in analytical model building and data-driven decision-making.
