The main objective of this paper is to show how the two approaches of Boolean logic and analytical hierarchy process (AHP) can be utilized to solve management faculty selection problem. The problem is solved in two phases. In phase I, we use logic to find the minimal criteria required for management faculty selection. In phase II, two different methods have been used separately: logical analysis and AHP for final selection from the shortlisted candidates to arrive at a decision.
