Teaching activities

Antonino is currently leading the following modules at the Sheffield University School of Management:

MGT3011 Decision Sciences and Optimisation: an undergraduate module for students of the third year of the course in Business Management.

It provides an extensive overview on methodologies for supporting decision making within complex systems, with particular emphasis on industry and business management.

Real-world success cases arising in manufacturing, healthcare, logistics and service management are analysed, where the combined use of Decision Support Systems and Optimisation Methods secured a breakthrough support for strategic and operational management to achieve optimal solutions while satisfying all system constraints.

MGT6155 Supply Networks Management: a postgraduate module which enables the students of the MSc course in Logistics and Supply Chain Management to understand and face the challenges arising from complex supply networks across different industries, introducing the relevant principles and management frameworks to effectively identify and analyse the problems associated with network management.
