Policy and operations are inextricably linked. This course aims to expose students to policy formation in a highly political environment, operations management of systems shaped by state and local policy, and their intersection, while building a toolbox of specific skills that support analysis and decision making in a wide variety of contexts. A unifying Multimedia Interactive Case Study (MICS) focused on the NYC family homeless shelter system will be the backdrop of this course. This course is an intensive engagement that incorporates perspectives from academic theory, City, State and Federal government, service providers, advocacy organizations, and public interest law.
