The Master of Management in Operations Research (MM in OR) program at the Sauder School of Business at UBC provides rigorous and practical training in the quantitative analysis of business problems. Administered by the Centre for Operations Excellence (COE), the program prepares students with backgrounds in areas such as engineering, mathematics, economics, or other quantitative fields for rewarding careers as OR analysts and consultants.
MM in OR students work closely with internationally renowned faculty, business leaders, and outstanding peers to develop and realize their goals in a professional business environment. The 16-month program offers a unique blend of technical coursework, practical consulting skills, and real-world problem-solving experience designed to position students for success in today's competitive business world.
