Program Overview

The production/operations management doctoral concentration, offered by the department of management science, prepares students for careers in university teaching and research.

Production/operations management includes the design, planning, organization and control of activities involved in the transformation of resources into goods and services. At a more strategic level, the focus is on matching supply with demand. Our program specializes in research that builds on academic theory and is relevant to practice. The relevance factor of our work is facilitated through the industry connections from our Operations and Supply Chain Center.
