At the McDonough School of Business, the Operations and Information Management (OPIM) area combines four related science-based disciplines:

  • Production and Operations Management
  • Operations Research/Management Science
  • Statistics/Decision Analysis
  • Information Technology/Systems Management

The area’s expertise and future growth opportunities are broadly classified into global operations, risk management, and business analytics. These opportunities represent both proven research interests for OPIM faculty and programmatic potential for research and teaching at all levels of business pedagogy.

The mission of the OPIM area is to contribute to fundamental research disseminated in outlets that have the highest impact. To provide superior and transformational education at the Undergraduate, Graduate, and Executive levels: in global operations, risk management, business analytics, decision processes, and the use of information systems and technologies that support these activities. To excel in our curricular and professional development objectives in a manner consistent with our traditions and values system.
