Master’s Programme in Decision Support and Risk Analysis

Online Full time Part time 2 years September 2018 Sweden Stockholm + 1 more

In this programme, you will acquire a solid knowledge of the theoretical underpinnings of various decision support systems including an advanced one developed by researchers at DSV. Hence you will have the qualifications needed to give well-founded advice to decision-makers in almost any domain after having completed the programme. [+]

Decision problems pop up almost everywhere, and a proper handling of them is fundamental to a well-functioning society. It is, therefore, somewhat paradoxical that even complicated decisions still to a large extent are based on intuition and not supported by adequate tools. A possible reason for this is that the latter is based on algorithms that in most cases can only be executed on computers.
