Department of Operations and Service Management and Logistics

Welcome to the webpage of Operations and Service Management and Logistics!

One of the most dynamically developing areas of management studies is operations, in another term management of activities. The fact that traditional production theory has been replaced by strategic concept, process and systemic thinking makes a significant impact on the organisation’s everyday life and puts it into the focus of economic rationality and basic business decisions. These viewpoints make better understanding and embody the new perspectives of modern operations management, logistics and value creation.

During the last two decades in the developed countries the operation of enterprises has been literally revolutionised by the concepts combining the capital efficiency and customised demands, almost conquering the whole world both from the east or the west, and “slimming down or LEANing” the corporate and organisational structures.

The aim of our department is to provide experts-to-be with knowledge about how to relate to real processes with understanding and creative mind, to be able to develop it continuously, and to be able to generate competitive advantages for the “whole process” and company.
