Where OPERATIONS means BUSINESS
In business, maintaining smooth operations involves seeing the big picture and solving problems through innovative solutions.
The Diploma in Industrial and Operations Management (DIOM) will equip you to do this so that you can help companies address industry challenges such as declining productivity and an ageing workforce.

You will also acquire technical skills in the use of specialised software.
Internships with well-known organisations will help you hone your practical skills by helping them develop solutions for their operational challenges. This real-world exposure will provide you with valuable work experience and help kick-start your career upon graduation.
