Department of Business and Management Science
The department is looking for highly motivated and talented individuals. The PhD specialisation in business and management science aims to give a solid training in using rational, systematic, science-based techniques to inform and improve business decisions, making use of empirical and theoretical methods reflecting the state of the art in the field. The specialisation offers three directions:
Business Economics (BE) combines economic analysis with the practical aspects of business. It is distinguished from the wider field of business administration by greater emphasis on economic theory and econometric analysis.
Energy, Natural Resources and the Environment (ENE) covers core topics like energy markets, natural resources management and environmental subjects focusing on climate change. ENE offers empirical research to support decision-making by government and industry. Research within ENE draws upon tools from management science, finance and theories for dynamic decision making under uncertainty.
Management Science (MS) is the application of tools, such as operational research, simulation, optimisation, game theory, econometrics/statistics and applied mathematics to help decision making in businesses and government. The field uses applied and theoretical studies, with a focus on logistics, energy, health, election methods, the environment, natural resources, fisheries and transportation.
