Ioannis (Yannis) Bellos is an Assistant Professor in the Information Systems and Operations Management area at the School of Business, George Mason University. He received his Doctoral degree in Operations Management from the Scheller College of Business at Georgia Institute of Technology. He has also earned his Diploma (M.Sc. Equiv.) in Mechanical Engineering at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
His research investigates the economic and environmental implications of innovative business models. In particular, his primary research focus has been on business models shaping what is known as sharing and access economy. The novelty of these business models lies in the fact that customer value is linked primarily to the product “use” rather than the product “ownership.”
Bellos teaches Operations Management to Executive MBA, MBA, and undergraduate students.
Bellos is a member of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), the Manufacturing and Service Operations Management Society (MSOM), and the Production and Operations Management Society (POMS).
