Overview:

The Information Systems and Supply Chain Management Department (ISSCM) has 16 full-time, and seven part-time, faculty members in the Information Systems and Supply Chain Management/Operations areas who deliver more than 12,000 fundable credit hours annually. At present there are also four full-time openings for which we are recruiting: a senior faculty position in Health IT, two visitors in IS/Cyber Security; recruiting to replace the visitors with tenure-stream faculty members; and one tenure track IS position which will commence in summer 2023. While some openings resulted from departures, others resulted from retirements or reallocation to the Department. The Department serves 383 undergraduate students and 164 graduate students, most of them in the MS in Information Technology & Management (MSITM) program or its stackable certificates in cyber security, business analytics, or supply chain management. At present, there are seven students enrolled in the Department’s Ph.D. program in Information Systems. Both the BS in ISSCM and the MS 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 gain industry certifications. 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.
