Our OTM faculty is known for their teaching and research excellence. Together with our OTM Executive Advisory Board (EAB), consisting of more than a dozen local executives in Operations and IT, the faculty continuously reviews the program curriculum to ensure our continuing ability to meet the needs of businesses and students.
