I organize the Behavioral Operations Management Summer Institute for PhD students together with Steve Leider & Ryan Buell. Here is the link to the 2019 Summer Institute at the University of Michigan. We plan to offer the next institute Summer 2022. In general, we plan to offer the institute every other summer, rotating locations among Michigan, Harvard, and Wisconsin. Interested PhD students/Advisors are welcome to get in contact!
I helped launch the MS in Business Analytics at Wisconsin and served as its first academic co-director. Happy to help point interested students towards resources to see if it's right for them.
