O que eu aprenderei?

Continuously improving business processes is of increasing importance for companies competing in today's global markets. For society, there is a strong need to sustain work opportunities by realising and utilising the potential in existing businesses. Companies need to compete both by bringing new products to the market and by improving existing products and processes. These two aspects constitute the rationale underlying this master’s programme.

Programme description

Aimed at improving the processes through which new and existing products and services are developed and delivered, we now witness a strong upsurge in industry’s interest in improvement techniques and philosophies. Examples are Six Sigma, Lean Production and Lean Product Development. Many industrial companies and public organizations are using improvement programmes based on these or similar ideas and success in these programmes requires a change in mindset together with organisational transformations. Engineers equipped with the knowledge and competence required for leading quality driven change processes and business improvement are therefore crucial.

This Master’s programme in Quality and Operations Management supports you as a student in acquiring the knowledge and skills required to manage, improve and transform innovative and organisational processes as e.g. developing new innovative offers, manufacturing and delivery.

The programme gives you a thorough understanding of tools for identifying customer needs and business opportunities. You will be trained in the skills needed to manage the process of developing products and services. A strong focus will be on the usage of different qualitative and quantitative tools. Another focus will be on production and delivery processes, in both manufacturing and service and on the tools and techniques for their improvement. You will acquire a number of competencies needed to manage improvement and change processes, whether they concern product development or production. These skills include leadership, project management and change management.

Educational methods

The programme’s pedagogic frame is built on your participation and responsibility for your own learning process. Within the theoretical parts of the education and in order to improve your ability to present ideas both in written and oral form, you will write, present and discuss cases and term papers at seminars.

In the programme a number of group projects will be carried out, all of them in cross-cultural teams. This provides a training arena for cross-cultural group work preparing you for taking the lead in cross-cultural improvement projects.

Career opportunities

Graduates of the programme can find positions as quality and improvement process facilitators, problem solvers or change agents, production, quality or product development engineers or project managers. There is also the prospect of working within management in the above mentioned areas as well as management consultants or academic researchers.

Examples of positions acquired by students of earlier versions of this programme are: management consultants, production engineers, quality engineers, Six Sigma Black Belts, project leaders in product development and company internal quality consultants. Future career opportunities are not restricted to manufacturing organizations, but also include service providing organizations and public services.
