Department of Decision Sciences

The Department of Decision Sciences is an interdisciplinary department in the School of Business. As a department, it brings together faculty from several fields in the social sciences with a common interest in the normative and positive study of judgment and decision making in the context of an organization, operation or at an individual level, thereby applying qualitative and quantitative approaches, experimental as well as market approaches. We have a particularly strong focus on Supply Chain Management, the coordination and integration of a value network to ensure a continual refinement of products and services with agility, adaptability, and alignment so that they satisfy demands in the global market.

Our faculty have backgrounds spanning from economics and statistics to insurance studies, management science, information systems management and marketing. Many of our faculty have international and industry experience, and the department maintains close links with industry and several designation-granting bodies.
