Decision Sciences is the application of quantitative methods to business decision-making using the techniques of statistics and operations management. Mathematical models, supplemented with company or government data, are used to provide solutions to workplace problems. Decision Sciences, also known as Quantitative Business Analysis or Quantitative Methods and Modeling, has overlap with programs in business intelligence, mathematics, management science, and operations research. Decision Sciences methods include data analysis, forecasting, quality and Six Sigma, optimization, project management, data mining, and supply chain management.
