Advances in business knowledge and technology have radically changed business systems and processes – for example, how organizations buy and sell goods and services, integrate their supply chain and logistic systems, and reach or retain customers. As a result, critical to today’s businesses is the ability to get the right information to the right people at the right time, so that both strategic and operational decisions are made properly and quickly. To help students develop this ability, the Leeds School of Business offers the OPIM Certificate.
The OPIM Certificate requires students to complete any three courses in the Operations Management and/or Information Management tracks of the Management and Entrepreneurship major (3 credits each for a total of 9 credits) and either a faculty-supervised OPIM research project (MGMT 4900: Independent Study) or internship (MGMT 4910: Academic Internship in Management). In addition, students are required to maintain an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher for the selected courses and receive a letter grade of “B-” or higher in each of the three courses. Successful completion of the certificate program will appear on the student’s transcript.

When completing your paperwork, make sure to maintain the same level of writing quality you would when pursuing a job opportunity.
