Faculty Spotlight

Kurt Bretthauer

Kurt Bretthauer

Professor of Operations and Decision Technologies

“When I first graduated, decision sciences in business schools was a very theoretical field, heavily focused on the mathematics. Being able to now apply those principles to real problems in the health care industry is very rewarding.”

Impacting Lives Across the World Every Day

Analytical. Intelligent. Driven. Committed. Our students come from diverse backgrounds, but they share many common characteristics, including the ability to use their analytical and technological skills to effectively solve business problems.

The principles that shape the Operations and Decision Technologies Department are the same as the ones used at the many companies that repeatedly recruit and hire our students.

Through innovative courses and cutting-edge technology, our students learn the skills they need to be effective managers and problem solvers. They also master the underlying theories and applications in supply chain management, information systems, operations management, and decision sciences—areas that impact all of our lives on a daily basis.

Operations and Decision Technologies Students:

  • Become experts in the concepts, tools, and advanced technologies that are the foundations of our integrated, forward-oriented curriculum.
  • Work with renowned faculty who are at the leading edge of research and curriculum development. Many have authored best-sellers and widely used textbooks or been hired by multinational companies and major sports teams to create efficiencies, solve complex problems, provide value, and train executives.
  • Network with global companies and gain access to jobs and internships in consulting, corporate management, business analysis, and more.
