This major requires 18 credits in the operations management area.
Because doctoral students in this area are part of the Decision Sciences/Operations Management Doctoral Consortium, they take both decision sciences and operations management core courses. Specifically, students take the basic operations research sequence and the basic operations management sequence in their first two years. The remaining credits are selected from a broad set of courses, which allows students to tailor their programs. As with other business majors, students supplement the program with minor courses (9 credit hours) and methodology and analysis courses (9 credit hours).
