Due to the multidisciplinary nature of the field, PhD students at The Operations Management and Information Systems area of the York University are provided with grounding in three quantitative areas: statistical methods, microeconomics and game theory, and optimization techniques.
These core disciplines establish a rigorous foundation for research in the empirical sciences as applied to the field of operations management and information systems. During their second year of study, students have the opportunity to further specialize according to their research interests by taking courses approved by the OMIS PhD Coordinator.
OMIS faculty regularly publish their research within the best journals in their respective fields (such as the Journal of Operations Management, Management Science, and MIS Quarterly) as well as leading journals in other disciplines (i.e. Strategic Management Journal and Environmental Informatics Archives).
Research interests within the faculty range from mainstream topics such as supply chain strategy and knowledge management systems to emerging topics such as environmentally sustainable business practices. While the area has a core capability in empirical research methods, OMIS faculty have successfully applied a range of empirical and analytical methods depending on the requirements of specific research programs.
