About

Management Sciences offered by the University of Waterloo is an academic department within the Faculty of Engineering that offers an undergraduate Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc) degree in management engineering, an undergraduate option in management sciences, and both research and course-based graduate degree programs. 

Overview

Management Sciences offered by the University of Waterloo is a broad interdisciplinary study of problem solving and decision making in organizations. It uses a combination of analytical models, data science, and behavioural sciences to address societies' most complex problems.

Conducting meaningful research that will impact industries and economies, our students and faculty work under three core areas of specialization: applied operations research, information systems, and management of technology. 

About

Waterloo's innovative management engineering program provides undergraduate students with an engineering education required to understand, design, implement, and manage complex management systems upon which organisations depend.
