DBA in Operations & Supply Chain Management

The Department of Operations and Supply Chain Management (OSM) at Cleveland State University seeks applicants who are interested in pursuing research in areas such as supply chain management, operations strategy, advanced manufacturing technology, algorithm development, project management, quality management and scheduling, who also possess strong quantitative or statistical skills.

There are two main approaches to research in the doctoral program in Operations and Supply Chain Management: empirical research and quantitative modeling. Applicants interested in empirical research should have a mastery of statistical methods, while applicants interested in quantitative modeling should have a strong background in quantitative methods,(i.e.: applied probability, statistics and operations research). This background may be achieved through previous coursework. Applicants with degrees in business, economics, mathematics, engineering and related fields are encouraged to apply.
