Research

Research is integral to graduate education. From their outset during World War II, the fields of Operations Analysis and Operations Research have been interdisciplinary efforts to solve the most vexing challenges of the day.  

In order to fight and win future conflicts, we need to address problems for which there is no known solution. 

The OR Department at NPS is committed to developing and maintaining a world class research program that helps people and organizations make better decisions, improves real-world operations, and influences policy.
