This program balances service and production management—while emphasizing the leadership skills needed to facilitate organizational improvement. Students explore a full range of operational topics, including risk management, lean process design, and global logistics.
The MSOAM is a comprehensive 36-credit-hour program that qualifies as a STEM OPT degree (science, technology, engineering, or math), which allows international students in a technical field to apply for a 17-month extension to their OPT (optional practical training) period. This extension means that students could be eligible for up to two and a half years of work in the United States.
