Abstract

In this paper, we discuss approaches of learning an interdisciplinary subject with many different facets. We consider the field called Management Science (MS) which is closely related to Operations Research (OR). As the essence of management science we understand the application of the modeling approach for managerial decision support. The models are usually built using quantitative methods, such as linear programming, mixed-integer programming, network models, decision analysis, discrete and continuous simulation, queuing models, and so on. The underlying problems arise in fields such as production, financial planning, and vehicle routing. Traditionally, the emphasis in teaching management science, at least in Germany and Finland, has been placed on teaching mathematical methods, such as the simplex algorithm for linear programming.
