Who We Are and What We Do

We at the BOMC seek to empower Operations Management students in both their academic and professional journeys. We do this by providing opportunities for them to learn vital skills and gain meaningful connections, both of which will enable them to find careers in Supply Chain Management, Business Analytics, and more!

Our Events

Excel Speed-Up Sessions

Throughout the year, we offer free, seminar-style Microsoft Excel review sessions for students enrolled in either
Operations Management or Management Science courses. This seminar is designed to assist students in gaining familiarity with Microsoft’s Excel package to aid in their academic success. The seminar will be approximately 70 minutes long and will teach student’s basic Microsoft Excel concepts, terminology, functions, formulas, and spreadsheet tools. We will be hosting basic sessions earlier in the fall semester, and more advanced sessions later in the year!

Facility Tours

We organize networking sessions to present, learn, and discuss the power of operations management. Attendees include industry professionals, University of Alberta faculty and students. This is a great way for students to get their foot in the door with some of Edmonton's most respected firms.

Excelerate!

The BOMC is proud to announce that we will be hosting Excelerate, the first ever Excel competition at the Alberta School of Business. Taking place early in the Winter 2024 semester and generalized for any major, students will compete individually in a tournament-style competition to solve problems using extensive excel skills under time pressure. In order to succeed, students will have to deploy both knowledge of a wide variety of excel functions, as well as significant efficiency in navigating the program. The first, second and third place winners will receive a cash prize. Other competitors that place within the top ten will receive non-cash prizes such as OM Club swag!
