Information and Decision Sciences programs and research emphasize information systems, operations and supply chain management, and business data analytics. With a faculty comprised of world-class researchers and experienced industry professionals, we are committed to educating the next generation of business leaders in the cutting-edge technologies and processes that increasingly define successful businesses.
Our IDS courses evolve to encompass ongoing technological change and its effects on business. We place technology in service of business strategy, so in addition to studying technology, IDS students also study operations, analytics, and complex business processes in order to develop creative problem solving strengths and gain experience working on teams within larger organizations. The program produces well-rounded analysts, consultants, and managers who are ready to meet demand in a rapidly expanding area of business.
Research is an integral part of what we do. IDS faculty are active in research on information management, technology and innovation, data and analytics, health informatics, risk management, business statistics and forecasting, e-business, supply chain management, mobile computing, and social media.
