Department of Operations (DO)

The Department of Operations carries out research in areas such as supply and production chain management and processes, analyzing decisions and queuing theories.

The Department offers numerous courses at Bachelor's, Master's and Doctoral level.
It has a particular focus on the Master's in Management program, under the direction of Professor Valérie Chavez, who is a member of this department. The new "Business Analytics" orientation specifically includes courses in the area of Supply Chain Management, Operations Strategy, Data Science, Modeling, and Business Intelligence, to name just a few.
