The PhD concentration in Operations and Supply Chain Management (OSCM) prepares students in theoretical and empirical research to assume academic positions in operations-related departments at major research universities. This concentration’s interdisciplinary approach allows students to immerse themselves in the tenets of operations, supply chain and services, and to utilize cross-disciplinary methods from marketing, information systems, statistics, healthcare management, engineering, and economics.
Working directly with faculty, OCSM students will explore a wide range of topical issues, participate in top international conferences and publish in leading journals. Incoming students can expect to collaborate with their faculty mentors on joint research and publication.
