- Upcoming courses for graduate and undergraduate studies in Management Sciences
Management Sciences is an academic department within the Faculty of Engineering that offers an undergraduate Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc) degree in management engineering plus an undergraduate option in management sciences, and both research and course-based graduate degree programs.
Management Sciences is a broad interdisciplinary study of problem solving and decision making in human organizations. It uses a combination of analytical models and behavioural sciences to address societies' most complex problems.
Conducting meaningful research that will impact industries and economies, our students and faculty work under three core areas of specialization: applied operations research, information systems and management of technology.
A report released in March 2016 by Statistics Canada suggests "...Management Sciences and Quantitative Methods graduates were the top earners among male and female bachelor's degree holders in 2010."
The Economic Insights report goes on to put Management graduate degrees in the top five earners by field of study.
