Econometrics and Operations Research

Study programme is aimed at education of professionals in the sphere of the development of theory and applications of optimisation models, econometric modelling and forecasting, mathematical economics, optimal directing and simulation models. The goal of the programme is to train economically educated graduates who can develop and apply methods and models of operations research in tasks of mathematical programming, theory of games, network analysis, multicriteria decision making, theory of inventories and queuing as well as econometric models in microeconomic and macroeconomic analyses.

Professional level of pedagogues participating in teaching process to students at doctoral study programme of Econometrics and Operations Research, as well as relatively large number of professors and readers, enables to offer also a number of specialised and broadly aimed optional subjects besides compulsory ones. Study programme of Econometrics and Operations Research educates highly qualified professionals with deep knowledge of econometrics, optimizing and simulation methods as well as models and software products for quantitative analysis. They can succeed in central institutions, banks, and other financial institutions, consulting companies and in other positions where independent creative work and exact thinking is required.
