Operations Management Minor

In a time of constant technological change, managers will be increasingly called upon to manage new products, processes and systems. In addition to providing a fundamental understanding of the field, this track helps students prepare for the six professional certification examinations of the Association of Operations Management (APICS). APICS certification should significantly improve a student’s employment prospects.

Students in the Operations Management minor are expected to become student members of the Canisius Chapter of APICS.
