Program candidates in residence say ideas are “cooked” in the close research environment and innovation blooms. Working collaboratively with faculty who are system dynamics leaders and practitioners, students take classes online while developing innovative thinking and the entrepreneurial spirit needed to rethink traditional models and implement new solutions.
Some current research:
- Dynamics of quality improvement in healthcare organizations, including the dynamics of implementation of electronic health records, and lean training and implementation in the Veterans Health Administration
- Dissent within higher education
- Using computational modeling to study insurgency groups like ISIS
