Arijit Sengupta, Ph.D.

Dr. Arijit Sengupta is Associate Dean of Undergraduate Programs and AACSB Accreditation, and Professor of Information Systems at Rajo Soin College of Business, Wright State University. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Indiana University, and has been a faculty member in the Raj Soin College of Business since 2005. Prior to joining Wright State, Dr. Sengupta served on the faculty at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business and the Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University. While at Indiana, he served as Director of Educational Development. A proven innovator, since coming to Wright State, Professor Sengupta created and launched WRITER (Wright Research Initiative for Technology Evolution using RFID). This funded research center and laboratory at the College of Business is used to provide research, education, certification and training on RFID. He also founded SmartRF Solutions, a company commercializing SmartParkRF, an application of Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI) technology which serves as a focal point of his current research. To support AACSB accreditation of the college, Professor Sengupta developed AMP (Assess My Program) - the system that the College of Business now uses for its Assurance of Learning process. Dr. Sengupta currently serves as honorary Chief Technology Officer of TagMaster North America, an RFID think-tank and has been the director and coordinator of placement services at the Decision Sciences Institute for the last 10 years. His research interests are primarily in database systems and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

He has published over 20 scholarly refereed articles in leading journals, presented his work in many conferences and workshops, as well as authored several book chapters. His research papers have appeared in leading journals such as Journal of the AIS, Communications of the AIS, Journal of Database Management, Australian Journal of Information Systems, Journal of the American Society of Information Science and Technology, IEEE Transactions on Professional Communication, and Information Technology and Management.
