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.

The University wide competition starts with our department-level heat. We want Management Sciences to be well represented on the university stage!
The 3MT is a university-wide competition for research-based master’s thesis and doctoral students. Competitors will have 1 slide and 3 minutes to explain their research to a non-specialist audience.
This year we will be running our own department-level heat on February 27, 2018 at 2:00 pm in CPH 4335 with prizes and a winner moving on to the university-wide competition.
