Department of Decision Analytics and Risk

The Department of Decision Analytics and Risk brings together established specialisms within Southampton Business School with a strong track record in research. We combine excellence in management sciences and decision analysis, working with many major international companies and educating future specialists across industry and commerce.

We are a leading authority in management science, risk and information systems, realised and delivered through research, education and consultancy. We develop innovative analytical approaches for improving decision making and risk taking and support individuals and businesses to make sound and effective decisions through the application of scientific analytical tools.

The department unites knowledge and experience across the critical components of decision analysis and their application to strategic, tactical and operational scenarios. Our members' areas of expertise include: business analytics that harnesses today’s big data and produces information and knowledge to inform decisions; risk analysis that provides assessment and quantification of risk and an understanding of risk behaviour; knowledge management and information systems that capture and distribute information and knowledge for their effective use; and management science that provides a range of tools for scenario analysis, forecasting, optimisation, operations planning and simulation.
