Operations research as a branch of comprehensive and multidisciplinary cross science, there are two types of decision problems. The first one is how to make use of resource to fulfill the tasks as much as possible. The other one is how to Using the least amount of resources to complete a certain task. The planning model about resource utilization in the factory is built through the investigation and analysis. It uses limited resources to complete the production task at most. In the actual problems of the university financial management and daily life, multi-target optimization is necessary. Analytic hierarchy process is used to built Hierarchical evaluation model and make decision of how to select school for graduate education.
