Message to B.Sc. students of our faculty

As you know, next Wednesday, April 29, 2015, an information session will be given on the choices you can make next year in the M.Sc. of Business Engineering. As we agreed to present only 30 minutes to show you the content of each sub-discipline (Operations Management, Data Analytics and Finance), that means we can only use 10 minutes for each discipline. Not enough... to tell you what Operations Management really is, with little to no room to discuss all the details.

Three books / three reviews!

In the past few years, I have written three books on Project Management and Control (PM), published by Springer, that each focus on the PM topic from a different angle: one is about PM research, another is a student handbook and finally there is one that gives a summary of formulas, calculations and illustrations.
