About this program

Double Degree Operations Management

The 90 EC program (in Groningen and at Newcastle University Business School, UK) enables you to gain advanced knowledge and understanding of how to improve business performance and organise competitive advantages in technology-intensive industries. You study operations management in different business environments and cultural contexts.

Students get the opportunity to study at two highly respected universities while experiencing two well renowned European cities. You learn how to analyse operations functions in a network economy, understand various institutional environments and develop a sharp eye for operations management within multinational enterprises.

You take the 1st semester in Newcastle, the 2nd semester in Groningen and write your thesis in the 3rd semester. You will graduate with two degrees: an MSc in Technology and Operations Management from Groningen and an MSc Operations and Supply Chain Management from Newcastle.
