The MSc Operations Excellence course has been developed by Cranfield University in conjunction with Rolls-Royce, with support from the Institute for Manufacturing at the University of Cambridge.

The MSc Operations Excellence qualification aims to enhance the skills of professionals leading the development of the manufacturing operations supply chain, both internally and externally.

It develops skills and knowledge required to lead the implementation of change in business.

It covers all aspects of the supply chain, from introducing new products, operating effective factories, through to managing new technology and working with suppliers.

The course comprises eight assessed modules: Business and Manufacturing Strategy (Cambridge); Effective Factories (Cranfield); Management Accounting and HRM (Cranfield); Manufacturing Assessment and Improvement (Cranfield); Innovation Management (Cranfield); Production Planning and Control (Cranfield); Realising Competitive Manufacture (Cranfield); and Technology Management (Cambridge).

To undertake this programme, support of the employer or sponsoring company is required.

It is expected that part-time students will complete the MSc within two years.

The modular format of the taught element permits a high degree of flexibility of attendance at Cranfield for part-time students that may commence the course anytime during the year.

It is possible to undertake the programme full-time over 12 months.

This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS).
