Welcome to the Department of Management Systems
The Department of Management Systems offers interesting and practical papers. Its staff undertakes valuable research across a range of fields that includes: Electronic Business, Electronic Commerce, Supply Chain Management and Management Decision Making. We take real pride in our teaching and our research. We offer students the skills and the holistic approach to decision making required to succeed in today's challenging and exciting business environments.
Organisations once arranged themselves as a series of 'silos' - a collection of independent activities with little cohesion, such as marketing, finance, accounting, and distribution - but that doesn't work anymore. Today, businesses take a more coordinated approach and a good management system is like a good team captain - bringing different elements and individuals together for a common purpose.
Management Systems is about creating and maintaining operational excellence. This is achieved through strong information channels that deliver the data necessary for decision-making and through fluid supply-chains that ensure well-connected and efficient flows of materials. Information and web-based technologies make it all happen.
The department offers a range of papers at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. We also have an active and successful PhD programme. Please contact us if you require any information about the papers we offer or the research we do.
