Huntsman School to Become Home for Business Education Journal

A journal on innovation in business education is coming to the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business.

Vijay Kannan, professor of operations management and executive director of international programs, was selected in January as the editor of the Decision Sciences Journal of Innovative Education. The journal is published quarterly, and features articles on teaching innovation, and research on contemporary issues in business education with an emphasis on the decision sciences, quantitative and behavioral approaches to decision making. The journal is sponsored by the Decision Sciences Institute (DSI), a global organization of academics and business professionals in a variety of business disciplines.

Professor Kannan said he was selected based on his prior involvement in DSI, his research record, and his experience as an associate editor for another DSI journal, Decision Sciences, and for the Institute for Supply Management’s Journal of Supply Chain Management.
