About the Division

In the Management Science division, we work with qualitative and quantitative methods to understand, develop and optimize management decision within a series of research areas. The methods range from process oriented (as lean) to mathematical optimization models with an ever increasing focus on data science for all research areas. We are working within application areas such as production, financial engineering, health care, transportation, maritime logistics and supply chain management.


The division covers the full cycle of Management Science from problem analysis to model building to the development of new solutions, implementation and leadership. We are recognised internationally as a leading research unit in Management Science.


We offer research-based solutions to companies such as Mærsk, Vattenfall, DSB, Haldor Topsoe, Rockwoll, LEGO, The Capital Region and Region Zealand. In addition, we have ongoing projects with leading universities within Management Science such as NTNU (Trondheim), TUM (Munich), NTU (Singapore), University of Auckland (New Zealand) as Southwest Jiaotong University (China).


Our division consists of the research groups in Operations Research as well as Operations Management and also includes the Martime DTU center and Railtech DTU which supports maritime and rail-sector related research.
