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 Operations and Information Management (OPIM) Certificate requires 12 total credits. Students who are not pursuing the Business Analytics Emphasis, Operations Management or Information Management track in the Management and Entrepreneurship Division can take any three courses from the certificate course options listed below. Students pursuing Business Analytics, Operations Management or Information Management must take three certificate course options that do not already apply to their emphasis/track. Students cannot count courses toward both the OPIM Certificate and Business Analytics, Operations Management or Information Management.
To complete the OPIM certificate requirements, all students must also complete a faculty-supervised OPIM internship (MGMT 4910).
In addition, students are required to maintain an overall GPA of 3.00 or higher for the selected courses and receive a letter grade of B- or higher in each of the three certificate courses. Successful completion of the certificate program will appear on the student's transcript.
