Welcome to Management Sciences at the University of Waterloo
Management Sciences is an academic department within the Faculty of Engineering that offers an undergraduate Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc) degree in management engineering, 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 organizations. It uses a combination of analytical models, data science, 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.

Prof. Fatma Gzara and Gohram Baloch of the Department of Management Sciences recently conducted a study that looked at drone deliveries in the e-retail industry. It found that while demand for this new service is high, a slew of factors, including government regulations, technological limitations and pricing decisions, impact the feasibility of drone deliveries.

In a recent study, Management Sciences professor Lukasz Golab and graduate student Liuyan Chen used artificial intelligence (AI) and found support for the conventional wisdom that taking care of yourself makes you feel good. They built an AI computer model to identify key words in more than 700,000 anonymous online journal entries written by over 67,000 users of a mobile mood-tracking application. They found strong associations between positive moods and getting enough sleep, eating well and exercising.
