An Overview

The University of Winnipeg offers a one of a kind, industry-driven graduate program - a Master in Management (MiM) with a specialization in Technology, Innovation and Operations. The degree was developed in a unique collaborative effort between industry and UWinnipeg's Department of Business & Administration; ensuring students are learning essential applied and professional skills.

With the focus of the MiM in technology, innovation and operations management, the degree is addressing the challenges and opportunities facing organizations in all industries. Innovation has become a priority of most governments, private industry, and community organizations. Technology continues to play a key role in the business world, and in supporting innovative ideas.
