Management Science and Operations

We’re one of the leading academic groups in the country focused on improving management practice.

Our research in this area brings together expertise from across management science, operational research, business analytics, decision and risk analysis, systems, and operations and supply chain management.

How can we improve management practice by designing and implementing analytic approaches that better tackle routine, strategic or policy problems? Much of our research is centred on developing such approaches, using models that can be represented mathematically or visually, and built using specialist software.

Researchers from Loughborough Business School have contributed insights and solutions to management problems across domains such as health, transport, logistics and supply chain management, process improvement, group decision-making and emergency management.

Members of the group frequently publish in the most competitive journals and regularly present their research at major international conferences.
