About Department of Data Sciences and Operations at Marshall

The teaching and research of the Department of Data Sciences and Operations at Marshall (DSO) is comprised primarily of three disciplines: information systems, operations management, and statistics. While there is some overlap across the three groups in research programs, we profile the three groups separately. There are about 30 faculty members in the department who are very active in teaching, research and various professional organizations. Several of the department faculty have received research awards and honors, serve on editorial boards of major journals, and won best teacher awards.
