The largest research center at the School of Business, the Center for Decision Technologies investigates projects related to the improvement of decision making. Faculty in the center explore decision-making through disciplines such as system design development, social network use and crowdsourcing. Research focuses on better understanding the networks that are around us and within us, because understanding these networks can help us build technologies that augment decision-making. This work combines perspectives from information systems, cognitive psychology, social network analysis and various computational sciences.
The center's impact has been enhanced by support researchers have received through grants. The center's work enjoys support from the National Science Foundation, the Office of Naval Research and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, among others.
