The Department of Supply Chain Management at the Eli Broad College of Business offers a PhD concentration in Operations and Sourcing Management (OSM). Our program focuses on training Ph.D. students for faculty positions at top-tier research universities around the world. Students can specialize in either operations management or sourcing management with research focusing on theory development and model building in areas such as operations strategy, technology management, new product development, outsourcing, supply management and broader supply chain issues ranging from strategic supply chain design to tactical and operational level planning and coordination.
Our OSM program is considered to be one of the elite programs in the world with faculty widely recognized for their research and teaching reputation. Right from the start of the program, students are expected to work on research projects with faculty members leading to publications in scholarly journals. Students are exposed to a variety of empirical and analytical research methods that provide them with the right set of skills to undertake rigorous research work in their areas of interest.
As the faculty director of the OSM program, I will be happy to provide you with any other information that you may need about the program.
