Cadets will learn the methods, processes, and tools needed to understand and conduct meaningful decision analysis in support of complex systems. These large systems require an interdisciplinary approach rooted in technical, management, and leadership skills. Industry- and domain-based concentrations are available, including project management, logistics management, personnel management, defense systems, financial systems, cyber security, management science, international affairs, and mathematical modeling. Systems and decision sciences graduates are ready to lead multidisciplinary teams, perform systems thinking, and tackle complex, ill-defined, and interdisciplinary problems characterized by global, political, social, military, economic, and technological challenges.
