This course may be taken as a stand-alone programme, and is ideal if you wish to extend your knowledge in some specific area of Management Science, or if you have extensive practical experience and wish to research on the more theoretical aspects of the work.
The programme involves a mixture of taught modules, and a supervised research project and literature review.
The MRes programme entails taking the core modules listed on the next tab, as well as appropriate lectures and assessments drawn from the taught postgraduate programmes in the Department of Management Science or the wider School.
If you are intending to specialise in Operational Research, the modules will be drawn from those offered in the Department's postgraduate programmes. If you are considering Operations Management, Systems and Information Management, the MRes will include appropriate modules from other programmes within the Management School. These will be chosen by agreement between you and the programme director, based upon your intended field of research and gaps in your current knowledge.
Coursework takes up to 40% of the programme. The remainder of the year is spent undertaking a literature review and a supervised research project and dissertation.
