All ISSCM offerings are well aligned with SAS, SAP, and Red Hat, offering a pathway for the students to independently gain industry certifications. The department has active teaching and research relationships with several organizations with a presence in the region including Cone Health, Volvo Trucks North America, VF Corporation as well as multiple regional logistics and transportation organizations located in the area. Our faculty members are active in research and have published in such journals as Information Systems Research,MIS Quarterly, Journal of Management Information Systems, Management Science, Production and Operations Management, Journal of Cleaner Production, Decision Sciences, and other very high-quality journals.
