Operations and Information Management

The Operations and Information Management (OIM) faculty brings real-world experience and cutting-edge research to the business of teaching.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

With strong ties to industry and academia, we continuously explore new methods, models, and ideas that predict and keep pace with ever-evolving technologies that accelerate the development, production, and distribution of information, products, and services.

All OIM faculty are actively engaged in research, providing opportunities for Babs​on students to learn about and participate in uncovering new knowledge in this dyna​mic area. Armed with this knowledge, our students are aggressively recruited by major corporations, consulting firms, and small business enterprises. Entrepreneurially minded, several start their o​wn companies, either before or after graduation. As most of the OIM facu​lty have worked in industry—and many continue to remain active in industry through research and consulting activities—we are able to support and guide students and graduates in realizing their goals.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
