Operations and Logistics Management Major
The Fisher MBA program offers a joint Operations and Logistics Management (OLM) concentration. This program is widely recognized as one of the best in the United States.

By studying from a combined operations/logistics perspective, students learn how the total flow of all goods within and between firms can be effectively and efficiently managed. This integrated focus mirrors the approach that successful firms use to manage their businesses.
Students pursuing an OLM major take the base course Marketing 880, and then select either Management Science 835 or Marketing 881 as their second base course, depending on whether an operations or logistics focus is preferred.Students then choose any three of the selectives listed below for a total of five courses.
