The Management Science Research Centre (MSRC) of the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University was founded with a capital endowment from the Royal Bank of Canada in the 1980s. The MSRC plays a pivotal role in understanding, solving and anticipating the challenges in operations and services.
The MSRC is led by an accomplished group of eight faculty members in the area of operations management and who have all been ranked amongst the nation's best.
Specifically, MSRC members adopt a breadth of professional and academic expertise, including skills in Economics, Operations Management, Statistics, Operations Research and Engineering in order to improve business performance, supply chain efficiency, hazards reduction, service revenues and to enhance the overall interactions between operations and other functional areas. Through our combined efforts, we hope to identify a new understanding of the critical role of management science in organizational growth and sustained success.
The Centre is responsible for:
- Facilitating research activities engaged by centre members.
- Prompting the interaction between centre members and their peers in other universities and industries through seminars and industrial projects.
- Supporting PhD students and lecturers in management science for their research and academic activities.
The Centre members are engaged in collaborative research with Pratt & Whitney Canada, the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and other industry and government leaders.
The Centre is located on the fifth floor of the Bronfman Building, 1001 Sherborooke St. W.
