Course selection for graduate or undergraduate students is an important decision for their academic carrier and job proficiency. Students want to choose most useful courses for their ability and interests. Especially chosing a course between optional courses is accepted as a multi-criteria-decison-making problem. In this study in order to give information to the students while choosing courses an undergraduate university‟s operations research program is examined as an example. There are not many studies about the criteria which are important while choosing the courses. The criteria that are effective while choosing courses are determined by conversations with professional people about educational sciences. To determine weights of the criteria the ANP (Analitic Network Process) and to obtain final ranking according to impact on academic carrier and job profession TOPSIS (Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution) methods are used.
