Management Sciences are the technologies of scientific methods, which provide a quantitative basis for forecasting, planning, management and decision making in many business operations. The Department of Management Sciences is noted for its strong academic programmes. Most of the staff obtained their doctoral degrees from prominent universities in the USA, Canada, the UK and Australia. Together, they have many years of local and overseas experience in teaching and consulting. The size and the activities of its staff have made the Department one of the largest in management sciences in the Asia-Pacific region. The Department has three main functions: teaching, research and professional services. In all three areas, the work carried out is business oriented, with an emphasis on the practical application of quantitative skills.
