The intrinsic complexity of supply chain organizations and the coordination of operational and financial decisions throughout the supply chain are at the heart of the PhD in operations research. Weatherhead’s Operations Department has a rich history as a center of education and scholarship—it was here that the world’s first doctorate in operations research was granted. Candidates learn a unique combination of mathematics, statistics, and computer-modeling to assist in decision making for complex organizational problems.
