This is a rigorous 2-year programme aimed at providing advanced operations training to highly qualified degree holders. It is geared towards developing the research capacities of participant students and is positioned as a breeding programme for doctoral candidates in operations. The emphasis is research and students spend the entire second year in the programme writing an MPhil thesis under supervision. MPhil operations students take such courses as Business Information Systems, Economics for Business, and Operations Management.
The aim of this programme is to equip graduates with critical and analytical skills for researching, teaching and defining solutions to the opportunities and challenges in managing operations in firms and institutions. The programme goes beyond a narrow focus on participants who seek to analyse, understand, and manage operations of a manufacturing or service organisation. It embraces those also seeking to have academic careers as researchers and lecturers in operations management.
The major objectives of the programme are to
A good first degree (at least a Second Class Lower) in a relevant field of study from any recognised university and a minimum of three (3) years work experience. There is one admission in August every year. An entrance examination or interview may be conducted.
