Academic Bronze Sponsor

Overview:

The Information Systems (IS) group is part of the Department of Management, Entrepreneurship, and Technology (MET), which is housed within the LEE Business School (LBS) at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). Founded in 1957, UNLV is a doctoral-degree-granting institution of approximately 30,000 students and more than 3,600 faculty and staff. UNLV is classified by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching as an R1 research university with very high research activity.

There are 12 tenured/tenure-track IS faculty in the MET department, who have a substantial reputation for their scholarly output and disciplinary service and leadership. Current IS faculty members have published in premier journals within the business discipline, such as MIS Quarterly, Information Systems Research, Journal of Management Information Systems, Journal of the Association for Information Systems, Management Science, Decision Sciences, and Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, among others. IS faculty have also published in other reputed journals outside the business discipline, such as in medical informatics (Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association) and psychology (Psychological Methods), and have received grants from prestigious US Federal Agencies (e.g., NSF, AHRQ).

IS faculty members also hold senior/associate editorial positions at top journals (e.g. JAIS, ISJ, Decision Sciences) and have received major awards from the field, including AIS Early Career Award, JAIS Best Reviewer Award, and ICIS best AE award, among others.

Home to approximately 4,000 students, including 500 graduate students and 85 faculty members, LBS offers five master’s degree programs, including an Executive MBA, and nine undergraduate degree programs. Consistent with the vision of expanding program offerings at LBS, the MET department is planning to offer an IS area of study within the proposed PhD in Business at LBS. LBS is currently in the process of receiving approval for this program, and it is expected that this approval will be received by Spring semester 2024, for a Fall 2025 start.

Dr. Sutirtha (Suti) Chatterjee from the IS faculty will be present at ICIS 2023 in Hyderabad, India. He can be contacted to answer any questions on the proposed program.
