Courses by Focus Area

Four (4) elective courses (12 credits) from one of the eight focus areas. Two (2) of these four courses must be at the 700 level.

Courses below must be separate from those taken towards the six foundational courses. For example, if 625.633 Monte Carlo Methods was taken as one of the foundational courses (as part of the choice between 625.623 Introduction to Operations Research or 625.633), then it may not also be counted towards a focus area. In addition, the required 700‐level course in advanced analytical methods for math modeling (part of the six foundational courses) cannot also be counted towards a focus area.
