Introduction

The Information Systems and Decision Sciences Department offers courses in Information Systems, Decision Sciences and Business Analytics. Information systems are computer-based systems that aid management in making decisions and assist in implementing and controlling management policies. They are used in business, industry and government operations. Applications include airline reservations, banking transactions, crime prevention networks, election returns, real estate assessment, tax records, newspaper databases, sports statistics and computer assisted learning.

Decision sciences is the application of the scientific method to decision-making in business and government using the techniques of operations research and statistics. Nearly all decision sciences problems involve solutions using computers. Operations research uses mathematical and simulation models to provide decision-makers with quantitative information pertaining to complex business situations. Statistics assists decision-makers by using techniques designed to draw inferences from experimental and sampling data.

Business analytics is a broad field consisting of a variety of business processes for data management and a wide range of analytical tools for performing data analysis to make better strategic and tactical business decisions. Business processes for data management include methods for planning, collecting, storing and structuring data into databases and data warehouses. Analytical tasks include querying, reporting, visualizing, generating online active reports and running advanced analytical techniques for classification, segmentation and prediction (e.g., data mining).
