analysis with the practical aspects of business. It is distinguished from the wider field of business administration

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
