Operations Management & Decision Sciences


Renowned for his distinctive teaching style and classroom approach, Prof. Vivek Roy strives to bridge the academia-practitioner linkage via his finely carved course offerings. He earned his Ph.D in Operations Management from the Indian Institute of Management Raipur. He also holds a Master’s in Production Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (BHU) Varanasi.

His expertise primarily revolves around diverse frontiers in Operations and Supply Chain Management to address the interactions between logistics management, operations strategy, purchasing and supply management, servitization, and sustainability. Specifically, these frontiers shape Prof. Vivek’s teaching as well as his research orientation to connect operations with other disciplines such as strategy, marketing, finance, and information systems.

In research, Prof. Vivek is selective about the topics he works on. The key criteria of selection include (a) teaching relevance, (b) relevance to academic discourse, (c) practitioner relevance, and (d) methodological rigor. As a result, his publications have been limited by quantity but have been oftentimes appreciated for quality. The niche domain-intrinsic outlets that he published in include the International Journal of Operations and Production ManagementInternational Journal of Production EconomicsJournal of Purchasing and Supply ManagementInternational Journal of Management Reviews (British Academy of Management), to list a few amongst many. He has two single-authored publications in top-rated outlets, and is engaging more in solo academic pursuits
