Cooper Award

The William W. Cooper Doctoral Dissertation Award is awarded each year to a dissertation that deals with issues and problems in management or management science and has a strong applications orientation with accompanying theoretical or methodological developments.

"Management" is interpreted broadly to include the functional fields of accounting and budgeting, finance, marketing, production, operations management, organization, policy, and human resources management, whether the context is in business, government or not-for-profit organizations. "Management science" is likewise interpreted broadly to include concepts or methodologies in operations research, behavioral science, statistics, econometrics, and the information and communication sciences that are or can be used in management.

The award was established in 1989 in honor of Dr. William W. Cooper, GSIA/Tepper faculty member from 1949-1968, and the first dean of the Heinz School (now Heinz College) from 1968-1975.
