We focus on the practical application of Operational Research (OR), the practice of OR and OR strategy as well as on strengthening our theoretical basis in model and methodology development. Much of our research looks at how OR methods can be used to improve real world problem situations.
There is also a strong interest in how OR can be performed more successfully within organisations such as the Health Service, the electricity industry and finance. We have a collaborative research project with Warwick's Mathematics Institute and Computer Science Department called Discrete Mathematics and Applications (DiMAP).
We run a specialist postgraduate programme, MSc in Business Analytics.
