Industry Certifications and Beyond
Earn industry certifications during our program and after graduation
In order to promote lifelong learning, our concentrations can lead to industry certifications.
Digital Transformation & Analytics: courses taken provide significant exposure to operational research to lead to the Canadian Operational Research Society Diploma.
Management Consulting: our partnership with CMC-Canada fast-tracks students to the Certified Management Consultant designation.

Personalize your program through Directed Readings or an Internship
You can personalize your study even further through Directed Readings. This aspect of our program enables you to work directly with a professor on a topic of personal interest.
Or, pursue an internship to work directly with an organization whose industry, operations or challenges enable you to begin a career that truly excites you.
Note: Internships are awarded on a competitive basis.
Deepen your entrepreneurial experience
