Production/Operations Management

The production/operations management doctoral concentration (housed in 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 Center for Global Supply Chain and Process Management.     

The Production/Operations Management area will be admitting students for the 2016-2017 academic year.

Please contact Dr. Mark Ferguson at 803-777-5923 or for more information about the operations management Ph.D. concentration.
