Institute of Operations and Decision Sciences
Departments of the Institute of Operations and Decision Sciences
Our institute – in the disciplines relevant for us – is an active member of regional and global academic and professional communities. As a member of these communities, more than 50 faculty members are working to make sure that we can contribute to the sustainable – business and social – solutions for the challenges and problems of the early 21st century. Elaborating these solutions provides a solid basis for our educational programmes and research activities.
Our departments – as well as our programmes – focus on the theoretical and practical aspects of the supply chain, operations research, actuarial science and decision-making. The professional workshops of our departments are connected by the desire to expand knowledge in the following topics:
- sustainable and competitive present and future;
- networks, systems and supply chains;
- learning and development;
- risk management and optimal operation.
Our strength is that our work is characterised by a high quality of methodological skills and methodological diversity at the same time. We believe that the nowadays’ challenges can be best overcome by thinking together and applying different approaches at the same time. Therefore, in addition to the positivist approach – such as modelling and data analysis – the methodology supporting participation and reflection is also part of our every-day lives.
Our sensitivity to problems is coupled with a strive for making impact in both education and research. Our colleagues are committed to fostering the talent of university students and to project-based teaching. We are active in formulating academic and professional public life. At our professional areas, we seek opportunities to have projects jointly with companies, domestic and foreign universities and social stakeholders.
Our institute continues the decades-long work of several excellent professional communities of Corvinus. Our departments are directly connected to the former Institute of Business Economics on the one hand, and to the former Institute of Mathematical and Statistical Modeling on the other. The Institute of Business Economics was founded by Attila Chikán as a research group and department, and by Erzsébet Czakó as an institute. The department that joined the Institute of Mathematics and Computer Science was founded by György Meszéna, whose work was continued by József Temesi and Erzsébet Kovács.

Alumni Mentor Program
As part of our Alumni Mentoring Program, students are mentored by professionals who have graduated at least 5 months previously from the Corvinus Master of Business Development Program. In addition to establishing a personal relationship, selected students can gain insights into career opportunities within specific disciplines, industries, and companies, ask professional questions, participate in joint professional programs, and build their network of contacts.
Throughout the program, mentors support the business or career decisions of students as well as personal development as counselors. Working together means regular consultation in person (e.g. 1-2 hours per month) and virtually.
The aim of the program, which began in the autumn of 2018, is to channel the professional knowledge and experience of CUB alumni located in the labor market into the current education system, thus creating a realistic professional image of students and transferring practical knowledge from the employer’s vantage point.
