Comparative Decision Making Studies

Analysis and Decision Support Tools

"Nothing is more difficult, and therefore more precious, than to be able to decide." -- Napoleon Bonaparte

Graduate Certificate - Admission

Students will be admitted to the program by the CDMS Certificate Committee (Drs. Judy Goldsmith, Phil Crowley, Tom Zentall, Clyde Holsapple, Helen Pushkarskaya, and David Westneat).

To be admitted, a perspective student must prepare a written statement proposing a Decision Making project which involves two fields with two advisors (see a list of the affiliated faculty members). These fields should be the student's primary area (where they are acquiring a graduate degree) and a secondary area. If admitted, further decisions on the student's progress (e.g. course selections) will be made by the student's two advisors in consultation with the CDMS certificate director, Dr. Judy Goldsmith.

Applications for the Fall 2011 are invited and are due by June 15. Members of underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.

To apply, please contact Dr. Judy Goldsmith.
