Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Management Science field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Management Science majors need many skills, but most especially Reading Comprehension. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Management Science majors need more than the average amount of Programming, Technology Design, Mathematics, Systems Analysis, Systems Evaluation, Active Learning, Critical Thinking, Writing, Reading Comprehension, Judgment and Decision Making, Active Listening, Speaking, Complex Problem Solving, Learning Strategies, Instructing, Management of Financial Resources, Persuasion, Negotiation, Time Management, Monitoring, Service Orientation, Coordination, Social Perceptiveness, Management of Material Resources, Management of Personnel Resources, Operations Analysis, Quality Control Analysis, Operation Monitoring, Equipment Selection, Science, Equipment Maintenance, Operation and Control, Troubleshooting, Installation, and Repairing.
These two visualizations, one a radial chart and one a bar chart, show the same information, a rating of how necessary the following skills are for Management Science majors. Toggle between "value" and "RCA" to see the absolute rating of that skill (value) and the revealed comparative advantage (RCA), or how much greater or lesser that skill's rating is than the average. The longer the bar or the closer the line comes to the circumference of the circle, the more important that skill is. The importance of Programming is very distinctive for majors, but the Reading Comprehension, Critical Thinking, Active Listening, Speaking, Writing, Active Learning, Judgment and Decision Making, Mathematics, Systems Analysis, Complex Problem Solving, Systems Evaluation, Monitoring, Time Management, Instructing, Learning Strategies, Coordination, Persuasion, Social Perceptiveness, Service Orientation, Negotiation, Programming, Management of Personnel Resources, Management of Financial Resources, Operations Analysis, Technology Design, Quality Control Analysis, Management of Material Resources, Operation Monitoring, Science, Operation and Control, Equipment Selection, Equipment Maintenance, Troubleshooting, Installation, and Repairing are the three most important skills for people in the field.
