Please note that the BSc Operational Excellence online is not available for individuals, but for organisations with 6-24 employees, they wish to register for the programme.
The Online BSc in Operational Excellence is the only online Bachelor of Science degree in Operations Excellence in the world. It is specifically designed to increase and support the use of Operational Excellence methodologies in the workplace and help businesses and public organisations develop stronger operations and become more competitive. This course has been developed in partnership with leading Operational Excellence and E-learning expert Reinvigoration.
Built with the needs of organisations and their employees in mind, the online BSc in Operational Excellence allows employees to develop a strong knowledge of Operational Excellence and its methodologies whilst also emphasizing the direct application of the knowledge taught, via the implementation of a work-based project.
All modules are taken and assessed online, for a transparent, consistent and flexible delivery; this also allows for a more engaging and interactive content. What is more, the course is fully accessible via a computer, tablet or even mobile phone (Android and Apple devices) for an easy integration within your organisation. Students are supported by a tutor who regularly assesses progress made and guides them through their journey. Online help is also available should students experience any difficulties with the learning portal.
The work-based project aspect of the course not only provides students with an opportunity to apply their newly acquired knowledge, it also quickly contributes back to the organisation, to the direct benefit of the employer. Students are expected to take part in one substantial project, or a portfolio of several smaller, projects for six months of the year, each year.
