Management Science 50th Anniversary Event

  • Lancaster University Management School
  • Friday 27th September, 10.30am - 5pm

The Management Science Department is celebrating 50 years since Professor Pat Rivett took up his chair in Operational Research.

The programme that has been arranged will be in three sessions.

The first will cover the start of the University and the Department (Genesis?) with some concluding remarks by Peter Checkland.

After lunch, a second session will look at the developments in the Department over the 50 years (Chronicles?), with specific reference to research, teaching and external links. Some concluding remarks will be given by Geoff Royston (former external examiner and President of the Operational Research Society).

A final session will focus on former students, one from each decade, talking about what it was like for them (Revelation?). The five alumni are travelling from Canada, New Zealand, Scotland and England to be with us. The day will be wrapped up by Alan Mercer (even more revelation?)
