HEC Montreal is very good in the field.

HEC MONTREAL | Gilbert Laporte, One of the World's Top Researchers - The HEC Montral professor is recognized as the most influential, according to a Taiwanese study

A lot of the world's research in Operations Research happens at HEC Montreal and Polytechnique Montreal (just across the street).

The school also holds the Canada Research Chairs in several related topics (these are very prestigious distinctions, as they select top faculties and give them $$$ to research)

- Canada Chair in Operations Management
- Canada Chair in Information Technologies
- Canada Chair in Logistics

Also, CIRRELT (Inter-University Research Centre on Corporate Networks, Logistics and Transportation) and GERAD (Group of Research in Decision Analysis)

Hi there guys . I have been searching for 2 year MBA program in canada ,where is could specialize in operations management in the second year. To my surprise after searching for about 50 odd universities ,i was able to find just 2 universities which have this specialization.

  1. York university
-Schulich School of Business - Specializations & Graduate Diplomas
  1. HEC montreal
-HEC Montral Cours MBA

I have done my engineering degree in electrical and electronics engineering and have worked in dell computers for 2 years. I am very interested in doing my MBA in canada in operations mangement specialization .:D Even in the above to options HEC has a one year MBA only .

Its would be really helpful if some could let me know the list of universities that have an operations mangement specialization in canada . :o

Thanks a lot for your time in reading this post . Cheers .:cheers::cheers:

I think the Canadian univs emphasize undergrad GPA more than GMAT and work ex.

So for those who have low GPA's it's a place to stay away. There are US programs that may take you in with a 3.0 or less; I've heard that this is rare in canada.


I have a friend who got into NYU Stern and CMU with a 760 + 2.9 GPA last yr; he had some cool essays to his credit though. He was rejected at every place in Canada.


I said the opposite on my blog didn't I? It almost sounds like you took the contrapositive of what I said or is it the inverse? Math 224 was a long time ago...

Undergrad GPA especially if it was a long time ago, doesn't matter that much. My GPA was a lot closer to 3 than 4. My undergrad university used a 9 point scale so it is all a bit of an estimate anyway.

760 is a great GMAT score. Unofficially that would be the highest score or very very close to it in my MBA class (of the people who told me) but I know of people who got in to Sauder with below 600 too. Our class average was a bit above 600 but less than the previous years average and less than my score... The essays and letters of reference are really important.

Stern should be harder to get into than almost any school in Canada, I would think. If you have the time and the 50-100 dollars it is probably worth applying to schools. Pick a half dozen with one or two dream schools and few more realistic aspirations. There aren't quotas but schools like to have 'diversity' and good pull quotes they can put in their marketing material.

If you were on the national ping pong team, or you climbed Mount Killamanjaro, or you founded a not for profit etc. etc. Stuff like that counts and it ends up in quasi-official promotional material.

Good luck, hopefully things work out better for you than me.
