University of Westminster

Course Introduction

Based within our Westminster Business School, our operations management research programme supports research work in a number of highly applied areas including: Operations and strategic management; the impact of ICT on operations; online learning and assessment; supply chain management; decision support systems and expert systems; and knowledge management. Our monthly research seminars draw both external and internal speakers. Research students also benefit from a doctoral colloquium where they present their work and receive feedback from senior researchers in addition to their own supervisory team.
