Management Sciences and Marketing (MSM)

Research within the MSM Division is built around two sub-divisional groupings - the Management Sciences Group and the Marketing Group - and four research groups: the Consumption & Society Research Cluster (CSRC); the Customer Management Leadership Group (CMLG); the Business Informatics Research Group (BIRG); and the Operations and Supply Chain Management group (OSCMG).

The Management Sciences Group is in turn comprised of three areas: Business Informatics, Decision and Cognitive Sciences, and Operations Management.

Our staff publish in the top journals in these areas including: Journal of Operations Management; European Journal of Operational Research; Production and Operations Management; IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics; Information Systems Journal; Information & Management; and Journal of Service Research.

Highly cited

Some of our papers are among the most highly cited in their disciplines, while we also publish in high impact journals in other disciplinary areas including: Research Policy; Tourism Management; Journal of Product Innovation Management; and Global Environmental Change.

Our staff frequently attract large research grants and have recently received large research grants from the European Commission, EPSRC, the UK government, and the Natural Science Foundation of China. They also chair and participate in high impact committees within the European Commission, the United Nations, The International Standards Organisation, and the UK government, as well as in other international non-governmental organisations.


We teach a wide range of modules around the three areas at the undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral levels, taking our research into the classroom to build relevant teaching materials that take students into a real-world context to apply management sciences theories. Our burgeoning PhD community also reflects the breadth of our academic interests, and most students are working on client-facing projects of theoretical importance.

Our centres

A world leading centre of research excellence in the areas of Multiple Criteria Decision Analysis and Decision Support Systems.

Nikolay Mehandjiev

"MSM researchers have a reputation for their independent and forward-looking approach and they often work with industry executives from leading companies to ensure research remains relevant and delivers a high impact for both academics and practitioners. Their research also informs teaching across all Alliance MBS programmes."
