I liked the approach of Prof David Simchi-Levi, how he approached the course from simple basic problems and then built on them to go to a little complex and explained how it could go to super complex problems of real life. Also, kudos to Prof. Manoj Tiwari and his organizing team for making this course possible.

This course was a great help. Prof. David Simchi-Levi made the learning journey of a difficult subject appear rather simple. It provided clear understanding about the fundamentals of OR & operations analytics for me. I did not feel disconnected at any time being a non-engineer. Thank you NITIE team for this wonderful learning & qualification!!! Excellent reading resources.

I liked the structure, commitment of NITIE and the passion. The team did a tremendous job to stay on top of things. Coordinating a global event with 2500+ students and ensuring a seamless event for 10 weekends is easier said than done. Kudos to the team!!
