Introduction

Dr. Zheng Yusheng received his Ph. D. from Columbia University in 1987. Upon graduation, he joined the faculty of the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, and became its first tenured member of faculty from China in 1996, teaching at the undergraduate, MBA and Ph.D. levels. Most of his research results have been published in leading academic journals. Dr. Zheng had been an associate editor of Operations Research and Management Science for most than 10 years. In 2002, he returned to China to join the new Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business. He has provided consulting service to numerous companies. He is frequently invited to speak at major international academic and industrial conferences.

 

Achievements

Zheng is an associate editor at Operations Research and Management Science. He has also served on the editorial board of Manufacturing and Service Operations Management.

 

He has provided consulting service to multinational companies such as IBM, Teradyne, Voice of Europe, Corporate Decisions, and Vanguard Group
