The Decision, Operations and Information Technologies (DO&IT) Department
at the Robert H. Smith School of Business has the following vision:
DO&IT envisions that corporate and government leaders leverage the paradigm shift in technology
to transform the structure, operations, and governance of organizations. The department aspires to
meet this challenge through its leading-edge research and educational programs with a team of
world-renowned faculty. Faculty in the department are involved in the development of state-of-the-art
operations and information management processes and tools, and in providing thought leadership
related to the management of organizations in an increasingly digital economy.
DO&IT faculty are very proud of the department's excellent track record in research, practice,
and educational programs. The department was recently ranked as one of the top ten tech-centric
programs in the US by CIO Magazine. Members of the Operations Management / Management Science Group
were ranked eighth in the nation based on the number of publications appeared on top OM/MS journals
(according to UTD Research Ranking for the period 2009 - 2012). Members of the Information Systems
Group were ranked first in the nation based on the number of publications appeared on top
IS journals (according to UTD Research Ranking for the period 2009 - 2012). U.S. News and World
Report ranked the Smith School as having the fifth best program in management information systems.
The Wall Street Journal ranks Smith's information technology program as sixth best program.
