What Operations Research Analysts Do
Operations research analysts use advanced mathematical and analytical methods to help organizations investigate complex issues, identify and solve problems, and make better decisions. Operations research analysts spend most time in offices, although some conduct site inspections before doing their analysis.
How to Become an Operations Research Analyst
Although employers prefer to hire applicants with a master’s degree or Ph.D., entry-level positions are available for those with a bachelor’s degree. Analysts typically have a degree in operations research, management science, analytics, math, engineering, computer science, or another technical or field.
