Operations and supply chain management (OSM) is at the heart of executing an organization’s mission. The effective leader and business manager understands the unique role of OSM in the greater context of global competitive strategy. The OSM class (BUS 344) at the Richard J Bolte Sr School of Business prepares students at the Mount to integrate and analyze business processes, assess process performance across several measures, including those that are people and environmentally oriented, and finally improve these processes in line with the organization’s mission. Dr. Josey Chacko

At the Mount, Josey Chacko teaches the undergraduate OSM class and the graduate level introduction to logistics and supply chain management (MBA 583). Josey Chacko recently graduated with a PhD from the Pamplin College of Business, Virginia Tech. Over the course of his doctoral studies he taught several classes on quantitative methods and was awarded the best graduate student instructor in his department. Josey’s scholarship focuses on disaster operations and humanitarian logistics.

Josey spent most of his life in Kenya, where he completed his undergraduate education in electrical engineering. He then spent close to four years working in the Kenyan private sector prior to starting graduate school in the US. Josey is excited to be at the Mount and looks forward to filling out an NCAA bracket with MSM on it. He is married and considers his wife the best fraction in the equation.  

We are very excited to welcome Dr. Chacko to the Bolte School of Business!
