Industrial Management

What is Industrial Management?

The Bachelor of Science in Industrial Management degree (BSIM) is an engineering-based program designed for students with strong technical and quantitative abilities. The major provides the operations management training to technically-oriented students who share their first two years with engineering students. Majors may begin their program of study as freshmen in the Carl H. Lindner College of Business or transfer into the program from engineering programs.
