  • Operations Management

    The purpose of our doctoral concentration is to train individuals in the pursuit of original and high-impact research in the field of Operations Management.  Examples of research areas to which our students have contributed include: supply chain design and control, inventory management, production scheduling, product development, design of services, industrial contracting, dynamic pricing, industrial risk management, logistics, manufacturing and supply-chain strategy, total quality management. 

    Besides interacting with the other students and faculty of our group as a whole, each student in the program develops a strong working relationship with a faculty advisor, identified by matching research interests.  Students often interact with faculty and students from some of MIT's research centers.
