Management Science and Operations Management Masters (MSc)

Course Description

Management Science (also known as Operations Research) covers models, methods and techniques used to address a wide range of management decision problems in business, industry and the public sector.

This course introduces you to a range of quantitative, qualitative and conceptual models that can be applied to different management and business problems. It emphasises the increasing trend to apply 'Analytics' in business and management, exploiting management science methods, IT tools and the availability of data.

The course focuses on applications in Operations Management, which is a core application domain for Management Science methods and techniques. Students will also receive a thorough grounding in the key operations management challenges in contemporary organisations and supply chains.

The structure of the programme allows students to focus on advanced developments in the subject areas that meet their specific interests and career aspirations. In addition to the taught modules, the course requires a major individual project, undertaken over the Summer term, which integrates knowledge, methods and practical skills, and is often undertaken with an outside organization. The project promotes leading edge thinking in theory and practice, and develops skills in research, project management and report writing.

The course is suitable for you if you want to pursue a career in Management Science and/or Operations Management, whether or not you have a first degree in a closely related area. We welcome applications from graduates in business and management, engineering, computer science and related disciplines. Students will need some quantitative skills to excel on the course but the most essential requirement is an ability to analyze problems in a structured way.
