Tania Saha

Assistant Professor

Operations Supply Chain Management and Quantitative Method

Tania Saha has done her Ph.D. in Operations Management from IIM Calcutta. In her doctoral dissertation titled “Essays on Operations Management Decision Making for Sharing and Circular Economy”, she examined the implications of the existence of sharing and circular economy business models on the operational decision of firms.

The new emerging sharing economy business model (SEBM) facilitates consumers to get access to products instead of the need for exclusive ownership. In her thesis, she used quantitative modelling to study the impact of SEBMs in the domains of consumer-to-consumer, business-to-consumer and business-to-business on the traditional operation of firms and the behaviours of consumers.

Before embarking on her Ph.D. journey at IIM Calcutta, she worked as a Business Analyst in Wipro Technologies, where she was involved in the development of statistical models for predictive analysis of data using R and SAS programming for measuring the overall effectiveness of promotions for a leading consumer electronics retailer in the US. She did her postgraduation and graduation in Mathematics from IIT Bombay and Jadavpur University, respectively.
