The Department of Information Systems, Business Statistics and Operations Management (ISOM) consists of two divisions: Information Systems and Operations Management. The Department is internationally recognized for its authoritative research and ranked among the Top 20 in the world and No. 1 in the Asia-Pacific region, according to the University of Texas at Dallas’s survey (2009-2013) of the premier ISOM journals: Information Systems Research, MIS Quarterly, Management Science, and Operations Research.
Faculty members of the Information Systems (IS) division are on the editorial boards of the top IS journals. Our students have gone on to academic positions in Australia, Finland, France, Hong Kong, Netherlands, Singapore, UK, and the USA. Some are now full professor/associate professors and on the editorial boards of the top IS journals.
The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree program in Information Systems (IS) is a research-oriented degree that aims to prepare students for a research and teaching career in universities, research institutes, governmental, or business organizations. The program has a technology management perspective with a focus on economic modeling and behavioral research into the management, design, use, and socio-economic impact of information technology on individuals, organizations, and societies. The Ph.D. (IS) program is intended to be taken as the follow-up part of the MPhil (IS) program.
