Operations Management electives
In addition to the modules offered within the Business School as part of the MRes programme, we have added elective modules from other faculties within Imperial College London, so that Operations Management students can benefit from specialised training across the University that is relevant to their research. Students will take the Research Methods modules within the Business School and can then take elective modules in relevant modules which may include:
- Traffic Theory & Queuing Systems
- Fundamentals of Statistical Inference
- Applied Statistics
- Computational Statistics
- Machine Learning
- Advanced Statistical Machine Learning and Pattern Recognition

*These modules are available subject to capacity and timetabling constraints in other faculties and are differently weighted to the MRes Business electives.
