The Technology and Operations Management department (TOM) combines scientific ambition and rigour with practical relevance. The focus of our research and education is to understand and improve the design, manufacturing, and distribution of products and services in a digitizing world.
Our engaged scholars develop scientific knowledge and prepare students, academics, and business people to be critical, creative, caring and collaborative thinkers and practitioners.
We research and teach in three critical business transformations:
- business information management (BIM) with a focus on digital transformation
- innovation management (IM) with a focus on business model transformation
- supply chain management (SCM) with a focus on transforming into sustainable global supply chains.
TOM faculty members are internationally oriented and with a diverse background ranging from applied mathematics, engineering, and computer science, to economics and business administration. We are team players that collaborate with top research groups around the world with the purpose of being a force for positive change.
