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

“In the interactive session where attendees will be able to ask any questions they may have, we will discuss the philosophy of the program which focuses on creating a culture to allow for effective problem solving and waste minimization,” Urick explained. “We will also discuss the course requirements, special programs including some hands-on experiential seminars and trips, and the unique blend of traditional management concepts with Operational Excellence tools.”

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.

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 crucial to improving their operations on the path to becoming truly excellent.

Saint Vincent’s MSMOE program has been highly ranked as one of the Top 50 Best Value online Master’s in Management Programs in the country by Value Colleges, a ranking of Best Value in Master’s in Management regardless of format and, most recently, ranked among the top 100 in U.S. News and World Report’s Best Online Non-MBA Business Graduate Programs.

Applications are currently being accepted for the spring session. Contact Urick at or 724-805-2654 for more information.
