Shervin Espahbod

Assistant Professor

I joined the faculty at Cape Breton University in Fall 2023. I earned my Ph.D. from Wilfrid Laurier University in Supply Chain, Operations & Technology Management, and hold two thesis-based master’s degrees in management and Corporate Entrepreneurship. Prior to entering academia, I worked as a consultant, analyst, and entrepreneur.
My research program is dedicated to reshaping the landscape of management sciences and revolutionizing Operations Management teaching, with a keen focus on sustainability in operations.
My academic portfolio centers on societal impact-oriented innovations in business practice, particularly in supply chain management. I am a strong supporter of experiential learning and gamification in business courses. I teach a variety of business courses, ranging from Statistics and Data Management to Supply Chain Management, and have engaged in broader humanities and social sciences research.
