- Teaching interests
MGT137 and MGT138 Analysis for Decision Making:
These modules introduce a range of quantitative techniques and tools which can be used to produce useful management information within a business context, for example project evaluation using Net Present Value and Internal Rate of Return. The ability to apply this knowledge and communicate the results of their analyses in a range of business situations is taught.
MGT6046 Operations and Supply Chain Management:
This module provides knowledge of the basic concepts and techniques of Operations Management, along with an outline of some of the key concepts and techniques of Operational Research.
