Master of Business Operational Excellence

students in classroom

How do you create an organization where everyone is continuously learning, improving and remaining committed to its purpose every day? All while trying to keep up with your daily personal and professional demands?

Through research, teaching and engagement with exemplary organizations, we found that creating this perpetual learning organization and culture requires four distinct components, which we’ve incorporated into the Master of Business Operational Excellence (MBOE) program.

The MBOE is an innovative 13-month executive master’s degree program built specifically for busy, working professionals and is focused on preparing leaders who are able to design and manage at various levels within their organizations. Experienced project coaches and sponsors guide our students during their learning journeys, helping them become experts in four areas: building operational excellence systems, driving decisions with data, creating and sustaining change, and making an impact.

Last year, we followed three students, Amy, Joe and Brandon. Learn more about their time at orientation, half way through the program, their trip to Utah, and finally, graduation.
