Project details

This group is multidisciplinary, bringing together expertise in management sciences and operational research, business analytics, operations management and decision making. The group is committed to improving management practice by designing and implementing analytic approaches that help tackle routine, strategic and policy problems. These approaches are typically supported by models that can often be represented mathematically or visually and built using specialist software.

Research priority areas

Within the Management Science and Operations academic group we are keen to receive PhD research proposals in the following areas:

  • Improving management by implementing analytical approaches that help tackle routine, strategic or policy problems.
  • Developing analytical methodologies for tackling practical problems.
  • Contributing analytical insights and solutions to a range of problems within domains such as health, transport, logistics and supply chain management, process improvement, efficiency analysis of organisations, group decisions and emergency management.

Alternatively, you can develop your research proposal around one of the proposed PhD project ideas in the Management Science and Operations group.

Whether you choose a research priority area or a proposed research project, your research proposal needs to be aligned with Loughborough Business School’s Progress with Purpose vision and strategy that focuses on broader societal issues and enables inclusive, interdisciplinary and purpose-led research and innovation.
