The Decision Sciences Institute (DSI) recently awarded information and operations management professor Benito Flores the designation of Fellow.

DSI, an international organization dedicated to business research and education, named Flores as one of three U.S. Fellows in light of his research in the areas of forecasting and international operations management with particular emphasis on Mexico.

Flores, who has served as DSI’s secretary, program co-chair and track chair for forecasting has submitted research to DSI since joining in 1983. The professor was nominated for the designation by another DSI member and says the honor is both appreciated and motivating.

“It’s gratifying to be recognized,” he says. “And, it provides an incentive to continue to improve whatever research or work I do for DSI.”
