Professor Karca Aral-Wang recently joined Whitman as an assistant professor in the supply chain management department.

Motivated by the proliferating number of sustainability auditing agencies and the increasing concerns on sustainable procurement, she investigates the role of information acquisition and disclosure in procurement auctions. Her specialized interests in sustainable procurement are the focus of her teaching.

Aral-Wang graduated from Bilkent University in Turkey with an M.S. in industrial engineering. She received her Ph.D. from INSEAD, one of the world’s largest international business schools, in the area of technology and operations management.
