Dr. Smunt, Dean of the Lubar School and a professor specializing in operations management since August 2009, was recognized for his influential work in the field. His research focuses on strategic planning for manufacturing and service firms, supply chain management, health care information systems and operations, business process management, and international operations. 

He earned his doctorate in business administration from Indiana University, an MBA from the University of Missouri-St. Louis, and a BS in industrial management from Purdue University.
