Hello from Minnesota!

Greetings to our PhD alumni from the Carlson School’s PhD Program staff! Our students and alums enjoyed much success in the last year and we are pleased to share it with you. 

Eight of our happy graduates at commencement, May 2018

Eight of our happy graduates at commencement, May 2018

We would like to call attention to the emphasis and programming related to teaching in the PhD program. PhD students work as a teaching assistant each semester as part of the standard funding package. Before they teach an autonomous course they must complete several steps as part of our Teaching Initiative Program (TIP). First, they must complete either six teaching workshops offered most commonly through the Center for Educational Innovation. Or, they can enroll in a graduate credit course, Teaching in Higher Education. In addition students must write a statement of teaching philosophy. The PhD Program is committed to providing students training and practice in teaching before they launch their careers as faculty members.

Alumni Highlight

Suvrat Dhanorkar

Suvrat Dhanorkar, PhD in Supply Chain & Operations (2015) – Assistant Professor of Supply Chain Management at Smeal College of Business, Pennsylvania State University     

After earning his PhD from the Carlson School in 2015, Suvrat was hired as an Assistant Professor at the Smeal College of Business at Pennsylvania State University. He was recently named the Michael H. and Laura L. Rothkopf Early Career Professor for 2017-20.

Suvrat’s research focuses on two key topics: technology-enabled sustainable supply chains and alternative policy approaches for sustainable supply chains. Through these lenses, he tries to examine how technology, policy and markets can drive sustainable choices made by companies and consumers. He has published several papers on these topics in top-tier journals: Management Science, Production and Operations Management and Journal of Operations Management. In addition, he was recently awarded the Best Reviewer Award for Sustainable Operations Department, Production and Operations Management.

Upon graduating Suvrat shared these words regarding his time at Carlson: “As I reflect back on my years in the program, it feels amazing to know how much the Carlson PhD develops your abilities as a thinker, scholar and teacher.” We are proud to call him one of our alumni!

Student Highlight

Keyman

Keyman (Dennie) Kim is a sixth-year PhD candidate in the Department of Strategic Management and Entrepreneurship. He earned his AB from Harvard University in Biology.

Dennie’s research is aimed at understanding collaborative outcomes by examining networks of informal and formal interactions within and across organizations. He has a special interest in studying the role of interorganizational networks in addressing complex societal issues. His dissertation research examines one such problem—healthcare delivery in the US after the Affordable Care Act—by analyzing millions of patient-care interactions among Medicare physicians and organizations. Having previously worked in healthcare, on both industry and provider sides, he leverages deep industry experience to advance research in organizational theory and networks research. Specifically, he tries to answer two related questions: (1) What are the network-level properties that are associated with health system effectiveness? And (2) under what conditions can the establishment of formal network partnerships improve collective outcomes? His research contributes to the study of network performance and design, as well as to research in healthcare management and policy.

Dennie has presented his research at numerous conferences in management, networks research, and health services. Papers developed from his dissertation research are also under review at the Academy of Management Journal and Medical Care, a leading healthcare administration journal. In 2017, Dennie was named one of the Strategic Management Society’s Strategy Research Foundation (SRF) Scholars and received an award to support his dissertation research. He also received the Carlson Dissertation Fellowship, the PhD Student Teaching Award, and was a contributor to one of the University of Minnesota Grand Challenges awards with his co-advisors Aks Zaheer and Russell Funk.
