Master of Management in Operations Research (MM in OR)

Upcoming application deadline- February 15, 2014

The Master of Management in Operations Research (MM in OR) program at the Sauder School of Business, University of British Columbia is program designed for individuals with backgrounds in engineering, mathematics, economics, or other quantitative fields.  The 16-month program offers a unique blend of technical coursework, practical consulting skills, and real-world problem-solving experience that positions students for success in today's competitive business world.

MM in OR students work closely with internationally renowned faculty, business leaders, and outstanding peers to develop and realize their goals in a professional business environment. A highlight of the program is the Industry Project. Every student receives generous financial support by completing an intensive 5-month applied project with an industry partner that addresses a significant operational issue. Working closely with faculty and project leaders, students use the latest decision tools and technologies to make concrete recommendations to executives of some of the most prominent companies in Canada.

The MM in OR program is an ideal alternative to an MBA for technically-oriented students looking for a professional business degree that utilizes their quantitative skills. MM in OR students have excellent employment potential, and graduates go on to rewarding careers in such fields as consulting, logistics and operations analysis, and supply chain management.

We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total.
