Operations Management Leadership Program Continues Excellence

For more than 12 years, the Operations Management Leadership Program (OMLP) has provided financial support scholarships and leads for summer internships for over 50 Industrial and Systems Engineering undergraduate students.  These students have graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering degree and have been employed at several manufacturing and service industries.  A few of those companies include GM, Ford, FCA, BMW, Boeing, Henry Ford Medical Center, DTE, Faurecia and many more.

OMLP is an exciting specialization for ISE undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing a career in manufacturing areas (i.e. automotive, components, etc.) or service operations (i.e. healthcare, utilities, etc.).  This program was developed in 2004 as a solution to meet local manufacturing and service operations challenges in hiring and retaining first-line supervisors and managers. OMLP positions emphasize the continued increase of responsibility in operations management.  Funding for the program has been obtained from sponsor companies to provide scholarships for the students. The program is for IE students entering their junior year and focuses on delivering a sequence of courses, projects, and applied experiences to develop the skills necessary to be successful in today’s global environment. Specific courses in labor relations and leadership are designed as electives that will benefit students, who are seeking a BSIE degree.
