The module belongs to the core curriculum of the BSc in Business Administration. This course is about how companies can design their operations to better match supply with demand and thereby gain a significant competitive advantage over its rivals. A better match of supply and demand can be achieved by using an adequate set of operations management tools, more specifically, by implementing rigorous quantitative models and well-understood qualitative operational strategies. This course introduces a broad range of operations management tools and aims at teaching the participants how and when to apply them in practical settings.
