    2021 INFORMS/Organization Science Dissertation Proposal Competition Finalists

    I am pleased to announce the finalists for the 2021 INFORMS/Organization Science Dissertation Proposal Competition. There were nearly 100 submissions, with many innovative and high-quality proposals submitted. Before revealing the eight finalists, I would like to take a moment to thank the over 170 scholars who generously volunteered their time to provide reviews of the candidate proposals.
