|Abstract:||This paper presents several experiences regarding Operations Research (OR) and Simulation education activities in three master programs, each of them offered at a different university. The paper discusses the importance of teaching these contents in most managerial and engineering masters. After a brief overview of existing related work, the paper provides some recommendations-based on our own teaching experiences-that instructors should keep in mind when designing OR/Simulation courses, either in traditional face-to-face as well as in pure online learning models. The case studies exposed here include students from business management, computer science, and aeronautical management degrees, respectively. For each type of student, different OR/Simulation tools are employed in the courses, ranging from easy-to-use optimization and simulation software to simulation-based algorithms developed from scratch using a programming language.|
