The Operations Management Program was established in 1974 to fulfill a recognized need in the graduate education of military, civilian, and industrial personnel. Since that time, it has become the largest graduate degree program offered by the University.

Graduate Resident Centers are established at Naval Support Activity/Mid-South at Millington, TN; Little Rock Air Force Base; and Hurlburt Field Air Force Base in Florida. All requirements for the Master of Science in Operations Management degree may be completed online, at the centers, on our Fayetteville campus or a combination of these methods.

The program is housed in the Department of Industrial Engineering in the College of Engineering. The important relationship between operations management and industrial engineering is found in the curriculum. The principles of operations management, which are also key to industrial engineering, extend to subject areas such as the design of goods and services; managing quality; process, location, and layout strategies; supply chain management; inventory management; scheduling; human resources; health/safety; and maintenance.
