Operations and Information Management is about getting things done right with high quality in minimum time and with as little waste and expense. Superior management of the operations function is vital in all types of businesses today due to the increasing demand for successful project management, continuous business process improvement, better quality, better customer service, and intense time-based competition.

The Operations and Information Management program provides an in-depth study of the major concepts and tools in the theory and application of 
modern Operations and Information Management techniques such as project management, quality management, forecasting techniques, service and product design, supply chain management and logistics.

Graduates in the field have a wide variety of opportunities to work (or to own a business) across the manufacturing and service industries, in the private and public sector such as health care, aerospace, retail, petrochemicals, banks, insurance, fast moving goods, technology, etc.  This is why, through the program’s interdisciplinary curriculum, students will develop skills and gain knowledge mainly  in the field of Operations and Information management but also in liberal arts and the other business functions such as human resource management, marketing and finance.
