    About the Technology and Operations Management area in the PhD Programme

    Technology and Operations Management (TOM) faculty members are widely recognized for their excellence in research, as reflected in their publications in top academic journals and leadership positions in academic communities. Faculty members have serve as senior, associate and guest editors of top management journals. Under the faculty's close mentorship, students have also earned top recognition for their dissertation in major academic conferences.

    Research in this field draws from a rich methodological background in operations research, economics, and statistics. The TOM faculty members at INSEAD have incorporated this diversity in both issues and methodologies in their research; thus, creating an intellectually stimulating environment for doctoral studies. The INSEAD TOM PhD is characterised by its interdisciplinary nature, a good blend of academic rigour and industry relevance in research, along with a unique international focus.
