A master's degree in Operations Management can give you the skills you need to get ahead in the workplace.
Beginning Spring 2016, OMGT 5873 Organization and Control will no longer be a required course. Students who have not yet taken this course will be required to take OMGT 5623 Strategic Management instead. OMGT 5873 will be updated with a new title, Organizing for Change, and will be offered as an elective course.
The University of Arkansas Treasurer’s Office sets the dates for tuition/fee refunds in accordance with University of Arkansas policy. Since the Operations Management program uses a system of two 8-week sessions (known to you as terms) within the full semester, the refund policy can be very confusing. A full semester includes both 8-week sessions in fall or spring. If you are considering dropping a class in an 8-week session and/or withdrawing, we advise you to speak with the Treasurer’s Office to determine any refund you may or may not receive (479-575-5651 or 479-575-5651). It is also important to note there is a difference between dropping a class and withdrawing, and the refund schedule is different for both; withdrawing refers to dropping ALL classes in a semester, not just an individual class or classes in an 8-week session.
The refund schedule is posted on the Office of the Registrar’s website here. You need to make sure you look at the 8-week schedule, and not the full semester schedule, since they are different dates (a full semester schedule being twice as long as an 8 week session schedule). Once again, we highly suggest you speak with the Treasurer’s Office to determine your refund. If you are considering dropping a class, please do so BEFORE the first day of any 8-week session to ensure a full refund.
