Primary Purpose of the Organizational Unit:

The mission of the Department of Information Systems and Supply Chain Management (ISSCM) is to provide high-quality programs in information systems and supply chain management. We achieve this by integrating quality education with relevant research and professional service for industry and academe. This endeavor produces principled leaders and exceptional problem solvers with an innovative mindset and a commitment to improve and sustain organizations in a global environment and the communities in which they live.

The ISSCM Department comprises 17 faculty (plus two open positions) in the Information Systems and Supply Chain Management/Operations areas. As of Fall 2023, the Department served 410 undergraduate students and 159 graduate students, most of them in the Masters of Science in Information Technology & Management (MSITM) program or its stackable certificates in cyber security, business analytics, or supply chain management. The ISSCM Department has an active Ph.D. program in Information Systems. Both the BS in ISSCM and the MSITM programs are offered online and in person. 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. Faculty members in the Department have received external funding from agencies such as the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Labor, and the North Carolina Department of Transportation.

The Bryan School of Business and Economics has 4,160 undergraduate and graduate students and more than 120 full- and part-time faculty members housed in six departments and programs. Approximately 43 percent of the school’s faculty are women, and 27.3 percent are from underrepresented ethnic groups (UREG); the School is striving to improve both percentages. The Bryan School graduates more Black/African American undergraduate business students, and the combination of Black/African American and Hispanic undergraduate business students, more than ANY university in North Carolina and has a strong placement rate and salary.

Accredited in both business and accounting by AACSB, the Bryan School is the recipient of many rankings, honors, and accolades and the faculty is active in research. For example, in 2022 its tenure-stream faculty members averaged 2.3 peer-reviewed journal articles each (16 in FT50 journals), plus 10 others in widely acknowledged A-level journals, in addition to nine books, 23 grants and contracts, and 118 editorial positions with peer-reviewed journals. The Bryan School has two dedicated recording studios and two dedicated HyFlex (studio) classrooms to support its extensive asynchronous online offerings and the growing opportunity for synchronous online offerings.
