UW Bothell School of Business, Muckleshoot Tribal College offer program in operations management

Information sessions set for this spring

This summer the University of Washington Bothell’s School of Business is partnering with the Muckleshoot Tribal College to launch a new certificate program for working professionals in the area of operations management.

Information sessions will be offered at the Muckleshoot Tribal College, 39811 Auburn Enumclaw Road SE, Auburn, on April 18, noon to 1:30 p.m..; May 2 TBD (during career day); and May 9, 4 to 6 p.m.

The goal of the certificate program is to provide professional development, team skills training, practical application of business concepts and process analytics, and experience in managing a real-world business process improvement project. Every business whether in service or manufacturing deals with operations and the transformation of inputs to outputs.

The certificate program trains entry-level and advanced business professionals to improve operations by becoming more efficient and effective in the transformation processes. The program was developed by the operations faculty of UW Bothell to leverage their expertise and experience in project-based learning and business consulting and will cover topics of business process analytics and improvement, project management, cost and risk management and management control systems. Further, participants will have an opportunity to propose projects from work and engage their own organizations in the program.

The partnership between UWB School of Business and Muckleshoot Tribal College is a commitment to providing the Muckleshoot community with an integrative learning program, helping improve local organizations with project recommendations, and creating innovative educational opportunities for business professionals.

The certificate program will run from June to August, with the potential to repeat the program based on demand. All costs for the program will be paid for eligible Muckleshoot Tribal members. All others should email program managers for more information.

The certificate is coordinated by Deanna Kennedy, Ph.D., the area coordinator for the Operations Management and Information Systems at UWB School of Business and Denise Bill, Ed.D., executive director of Higher Education of the Muckleshoot Tribal College.
