The Operations Management programme from Graduate School of Economics and Social Science (GESS) at University of Mannheim, includes four renowned chairs (Bode, Fleischmann, Schön, Stolletz) that address a broad range of topics from procurement to production to supply chain to service operations management.
Each chair has its individual specialization and focus, but we have one mission and an integrated curriculum across chairs.
Most decisions in operations management involve many alternatives, with different impacts on costs, profits, or other performance measures. Often, decisions are very complex and trade-offs must be made. Operations Research (OR) uses analytical models and tools to make these decisions more systematically.
