About

Operations Management is delivery-focused, ensuring that an organization successfully turns inputs to outputs in an efficient manner. The field of operations management includes procurement (purchasing), supply chain management, and logistics. It is used to determine the price you pay for an airline flight and how to effectively design the layout of a grocery store.

Upon completion of the first year, many St. Peter’s College students move to the U of S main campus to continue their studies. In some instances, students can complete the second year of studies with St. Peter's College. St. Peter’s students must meet the same promotion standards as U of S students in order to move into the second year of study. Please contact Student Services for more information on promotion standards. Further information on this program can be found directly on the University of Saskatchewan's website.
