Please see the attached course syllabus. Thanks!
Course grades will be calculated using points from each project. Our goal this term is to complete 6 projects. Each of the projects will have a few components, with different requirements, deadlines, and point assignments. Also, each of the 6 projects will have a peer review component.
The project details may change during the course of the term. The possible projects for Spring 2019 include: “Retirement Planning” from Professor Ken Baker of Dartmouth, “Valuation of SimplexCo and ComplexCo Gold Mines” from Professor David Luenberger of Stanford, “Airlines Revenue Models” from Professor Samuel E. Bodily of Virginia, “Pro Forma Financial Forecasting” by Professor Paul M. Healy and Professor Krishna G. Palepu at Harvard Business School.
|Textbook & Reference|
The materials for the course will be:
1. Laptop/Excel. You must have and bring a Windows-based laptop to class that has Excel. Apple will not work, since you cannot run macros in Mac OS.
2. You will need simulation software. You have two available:
a. Simtools by Roger Myerson, Nobel Laureate of Economics of 2007. This is an older simulation package developed by Nobel Laureate Roger Myerson.
b. Crystal Ball. You can download a 30-day trial from Oracle.
• Required for each group of four participants: “Introduction to Management Science, 6th edition”, by Hillier and Hillier, McGraw-Hill, 2018. This is the textbook covering the basics of modelling as well as the basics of the prerequisite tools Analytic Solver. Students should read, in particular, Chapters 4, 12, and 13 of this book.
