      ** This is a Master of Science degree in Management with a focus on Operational Excellence. As such, the candidate must meet certain core competencies in general business areas over and above the MSMOE’s graduate curriculum to be awarded the Master of Science in Management: Operational Excellence degree. Those students with undergraduate degrees in business from accredited institutions will meet these competencies. Those possessing undergraduate degrees in other areas of concentration may be required to pass an exam testing for these competencies or take additional undergraduate level business courses. These courses are in addition to the MSMOE curriculum and can be completed prior to or during the period in which you are seeking your Masters. Please discuss your ability to meet the core competencies with the Graduate Director if you have any questions. The Master of Science in Management: Operational Excellence cannot be conferred to an individual unless core competencies are satisfactorily met.
