The program facilitates learning in modern concepts, techniques and methods in operations research and leads the student to different functional areas of game theory and operations research.
The Master's program aims to develop exemplary professional researchers and specialists who demonstrate high ethical standards and become an integral part of the applied mathematical community.
The educational program "Game Theory and Operations Research" was designed to prepare Master's degree students for research and practical activities, which use the application of mathematical methods and computer technologies in various research fields, with particular attention to management problems in the industry, finance, economic and social systems. The educational program focuses on training specialists in scientific research, analytical work, planning, and innovation, industrial, technological and organizational activities. Graduates of the program work in various fields where the approaches of operation research and mathematical modelling are applied.
The two-year Master’s degree program in Game Theory and Operations Research prepares students for a career in industry, science, and education.
It is the first program in English focused on the areas of game theory and operations research at universities of the Russian Federation.
The program is based on a set of modern individual educational standards of St Petersburg University with highly effective innovative mechanisms and advanced teaching technologies. Students and graduates have unlimited opportunities to participate in research, attend seminars and lectures conducted by scientists from leading universities.
As part of the educational program, students:
receive a fundamental theoretical background in the field of applied mathematics together with practical applications in solving actual problems in various areas of research;
learn to use advanced information technology;
communicate with lecturers and students at lessons, seminars, and workshops during the interactive educational process and participation in scientific projects.
