College of Sustainable Operations

The mission of the College of Sustainable Operations is to create a community of researchers, educators and practitioners sharing a common interest in the application of operations management principles and tools for improving environmental, social and economic sustainability. The prime objective is to foster the creation and dissemination of knowledge to improve our understanding of the issues at the interface between sustainability and operations, and to develop tools that can aid in organizational decision-making in both business and non-profit sectors. The College embraces theoretical and empirical research, practical applications and projects, field studies as well as teaching and pedagogical material.

The Production and Operations Management Society (POMS) College of Sustainable Operations invites applications to the 2015 Student Paper Competition.

The aim of the College of Sustainable Operations is to foster the creation and dissemination of knowledge to improve our understanding of the issues at the interface between sustainability and operations. The Student Paper Competition was started in 2010 to highlight the most promising doctoral student projects in the field of sustainable operations and provide visibility to the doctoral students carrying out this work.
