Master's Programme in Operations Management and Control

Are you interested in finding solutions to complex managerial problems and creating value for customers? Our two-year master's programme in Operations Management and Control will provide you with the knowledge and tools needed to manage the dynamic challenges of modern businesses and organizations.

The Master programme in Operations Management and Control at Stockholm Business School will prepare you for an exciting and challenging future career in services and manufacturing, in Sweden and around the world.

Operations management is the activity of managing the resources devoted to the production and delivery of products and services. It involves the design, management and improvement of services, processes and supply chains. For instance, operations management makes sure the right product reaches the right store at the right time; it makes sure staffing levels are sufficient to meet demand at a hospital or at a call center; and it is makes sure a product is manufactured and delivered to the consumer in the most resource efficient way.

Managing operations efficiently and effectively is thus crucial not only to businesses but to society as well. During the course of the programme, you will learn advanced theories and methods for analyzing and improving operations, as well methods for analyzing the financial implications of operations improvements. This is an exceptional opportunity to study operations management from a strategic perspective with focus on business development.

High employability

The programme is given in close collaboration with businesses and other organizations to address relevant challenges for managers in the field.
