Course detail

Advanced Methods of Analyses and Simulation

ÚSI-RSPMOAcad. year: 2020/2021

The content of the subject “Advanced Methods of Analysis and Simulation” familiarises students with some non-standard advanced analysis methods and modelling techniques developed in order to support corporate decision-making. It focuses on issues present in the field of risk engineering via the explanation of theoretical principles, and involves students in learning to work with such theories, and their applications.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

The knowledge and skills obtained from the course will enable students to apply a high-quality and modern approach to analysis and simulation (in the state and private sectors of the economy, organizations, firms, companies, banks, etc.) in order to support corporate decision-making, with a focus on the issues of risk management.


Knowledge from areas of mathematics (linear algebra, vectors, functional analysis, matrix operations) and statistics (analysis of time series, regression analysis, the use of statistical methods in economics).
