This course teaches how mathematical modeling helps understand innovation management. The aim of this course is to acquire analytical skills which are required to learn and to conduct research on technology management.
Modeling is a good tool to grasp the essence of individuals and organizations. In this course, the students will learn and exercise the methodology of mathematical modeling.
In this course, the students will learn:
1) how to grasp the cause-and-effect relationship in innovation management and make a mathematical model to describe it qualitatively and quantitatively.
2) how to analyze mathematical models.
3) how to interprete the results properly by comparison with practice.
