Corey M Angst

Associate Professor


Professor Angst conducts research on the transformational effect of IT, technology usage, and IT value - particularly in the healthcare industry. In recent papers, he has investigated the diffusion of disruptive healthcare innovations and the relationship to financial value and quality of care. Angst teaches undergraduate courses in project management and problem solving and graduate courses related to the strategic use of IT. He received his Ph.D. from the Smith School of Business, University of Maryland; his M.B.A. from the Alfred Lerner College of Business & Economics, University of Delaware; and his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Western Michigan University. From 2005-2007, Angst was the Associate Director of the Center for Health Information and Decision Systems at the University of Maryland. Prior to pursuing his graduate education, Angst worked for 10 years in both technical and strategic roles, most recently as a consultant with the DuPont Company. Angst has conducted research and consulted in the healthcare IT domain for many large multinational companies and for the federal government.
