Master of Science in Management: Operational Excellence Plans Information Session

Sept. 19, 2018

Saint Vincent College will host an information session for persons interested in learning more about its Master of Science in Management: Operational Excellence (MSMOE) program at the Alex G. McKenna School of Business, Economics and Government at 5:45 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 24, in room 42 of Alfred Hall (fourth floor) on the campus of Saint Vincent College, or online.

The event will be presented by Dr. Michael J. Urick, assistant professor of management and operational excellence and director of the graduate degree program.

The program takes an innovative approach to exploring major issues facing managers in today’s turbulent business climate. Specifically, the MSMOE is innovative in its approach to supplementing classroom learning with a hands-on approach that provides students the tools they need to minimize waste in their organizations while increasing quality, improving efficiency and fostering employee commitment.  As such, the MSMOE defines “management” as focusing on three interrelated areas: people, organizations and processes. The MSMOE Program helps its students build trust, foster collaboration, develop skills related to understanding their environment, craft goals and understand key metrics that help them achieve high productivity, output and efficiency for their organizations.

Faculty in the MSMOE include leaders in their respective areas and have experience as managers, executives, researchers, business owners and consultants. Graduates of the program have consistently reported being more effective in their jobs as well as being aggressively recruited by organizations who see proper management techniques as crucial to improving their operations on the path to becoming truly excellent.

Contact Urick at for more information. Urick may also be contacted for those who wish to join the session virtually using an online web service.
