The Minor in Management Science introduces undergraduates in other MIT majors to the techniques of quantitative business analysis and their application to practical problems.
This new minor comprises four required subjects and two electives. The required subjects are the following:
|6.041||Probabilistic Systems Analysis||12|
|14.01||Principles of Microeconomics||12|
|15.053*||Optimization Methods in Management Science||12|
|15.075||Statistical Thinking and Data Analysis||12|
The two electives in the Minor in Management Science, unlike the Minor in Management, must be chosen from a list of restricted electives (below). Each subject must carry at least nine units of credit. Two six-unit subjects count as a single elective. No substitutions or alternative electives will be permitted.

Students must pre-register and bid for every Sloan graduate subject they wish to take the following term. Students will no longer bid for Sloan undergraduate subjects (those designated as “U” in the MIT Subject Listing and Schedule).
Students enrolled in the Minor in Management will be given Sloan student priority for Sloan graduate subjects on the list of restricted electives above.
For additional information about the bidding process, visit the Sloan Bidding site.
** Special seminar topics change from term to term; this seminar will satisfy the requirement if it is taken during the term indicated.
