Welcome to the Department of Decision Sciences. We are a multidisciplinary department focusing on Analytics, Operations Research (OR) and Supply Chain Management (SCM).

We aim to bridge academic research and industry challenges in the field of Operations Management, OR and SCM. Our modules are conducted in an interactive learning environment, integrated with technology and adopting collaborative learning strategies.

Our research is regularly published in such distinguished journals as Management Science, Operations Research, Manufacturing and Service Operations, and Production and Operations Management.

 Beyond research, the department contributes to the society by having its faculty sit on the National Productivity and Continuing Education Council chaired by Deputy Prime Minister of Singapore. We also collaborate with the industry including the Yamato Group (Japan) on a project on express delivery and its famed Ta-Q-Bin system.

Our doctoral programme have seen our students placed in Chinese University of Hong Kong (Hong Kong), Hautes Etudes Commerciales (France), Shanghai Jiao Tong University (China) and Universidad Adolfo Ibanez (Chile).

Singapore, in particular NUS, has emerged as a hotbed for research in Optimization and Operations. The department aims to ride the cusp of this wave to further our research and contribute to our knowhow to the society.
