Master Operations Management and Logistics

Operations form the base of every organization, whether in manufacturing, service or non-profit industries. Operations Management and Logistics (OML) is a multidisciplinary field that addresses the efficiency and effectiveness of the operations of an organization. OML comprises disciplines such as product development, quality management, logistics, information systems, and human resource management. Operations extend from the performance management of a group of design engineers or building in quality-feedback loops to the precise prediction of production and delivery performance. Supply chain management and the design of information architectures for e-business are also part of operations management.

OML Master of Science (MSc) degree program provides theory, tools, and techniques for the management of operations. You will apply the knowledge that you gain during the program in the various projects, in which you will learn what it means to carry out your own research. You will learn how to analyze the current operational performance of an organization, how to explain it in terms of quality, cost, and time, and how to improve this performance by redesigning business processes.

In the academic year of 2015/2016 we are starting with our redesigned OML MSc program. The key feature of the new program is that it takes the interest of students central in terms of choice flexibility. The new program offers the students five tracks (plus a special/free track) that consist of courses that belong together and master thesis subjects for which those courses are relevant: 1) Healthcare, 2) Capital Goods, 3) Consumer Goods, 4) Service Operations, and 5) Transportation. While the program still remains as one OML MSc program, the tracks are there to guide the students from the beginning in order to help them choose the most relevant courses for their master’s projects.
