Primary Purpose of the Organizational Unit:
The mission of the Department of Information Systems and Supply Chain Management (ISSCM) is to provide high-quality programs in information systems and supply chain management.

The ISSCM Department comprises 17 faculty (plus three open positions) in the Information Systems and Supply Chain Management/Operations areas. As of Fall 2023, the Department served 410 undergraduate students and 159 graduate students, most of them in the Masters of Science in Information Technology & Management (MSITM) program or its stackable certificates in cyber security, business analytics, or supply chain management. The ISSCM Department has an active Ph.D. program in Information Systems. Both the BS in ISSCM and the MSITM programs are offered online and in person. All ISSCM offerings are well aligned with SAS, SAP, and Red Hat, offering a pathway for the students to independently gain industry certifications. The department has active teaching and research relationships with several organizations with a presence in the region including Cone Health, Volvo Trucks North America, VF Corporation as well as multiple regional logistics and transportation organizations located in the area. Our faculty members are active in research and have published in such journals as Information Systems Research , MIS Quarterly , Journal of Management Information Systems , Management Science, Production and Operations Management, Journal of Cleaner Production, Decision Sciences , and other very high-quality journals. Faculty members in the Department have received external funding from agencies such as the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Labor, and the North Carolina Department of Transportation.

The Bryan School of Business and Economics has 4,160 undergraduate and graduate students and more than 120 full- and part-time faculty members housed in six departments and programs.
