Summary

After graduating the training, students should be able to define basic terminology at the decision-making theory, specify approaches to solving of decision-making problems, characterize the structure of the decision-making process, be able to recognize the decision making under certainty, uncertainty and risk and apply these methods with examples from the practical life.
