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 in the 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 the Operations track can take any three Information track courses, while students pursuing the Information track can take any three Operations track courses.
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.
