Areas of Study
Information Systems is one of three doctoral programs offered by Kelley’s Department of Operations and Decision Technologies (ODT). In the Information Systems doctoral program, students examine existing, and create new, research methodologies that help organizations manage information systems.
This major is increasingly important as information systems are now present in almost all corporations and service organizations, and organizations and individuals are placing greater reliance on information systems to generate and process information needed to support their businesses. New technologies are constantly being developed to access and communicate information to others—and it is important to study the manner in which these technologies are used and their impact on organizations and people.
Information Systems students learn from the best teachers. ODT faculty members have published more than 75 articles in professional journals in the past two years and have written 35 unique books, including the definitive textbooks in operations management, operations research, data communications and networking, data analysis, and Excel modeling. They have consulted for organizations ranging from hospitals and nonprofits to corporations and major league sports teams such as the Dallas Mavericks.
