About the Listings
Our goal is to list any program that offers a good environment for students to study one or more OR/MS areas. This typically requires a degree program in an OR/MS field, a significant track in an ORMS related area, or several professors engaged in active research in OR/MS.
If you're looking for an introduction to OR/MS, you might want to try the the INFORMS OR/MS Resource Collection site (especially J. E. Beasley's OR-Notes), the INFORMS Career FAQ's, or just check to see if your local university or college offers any introductory courses.
For the listings by type of program, programs are classified as being based in "business" or "engineering/mathematics/computer science". We recognize that this categorization is not always easy (some programs are cross-listed), but we feel that these listings may be helpful for some people.
Our objective in this section is to provide rankings of OR programs / Universities in the U.S. and abroad based on different criteria.
History and Acknowledgments
This site was created in February 2001 for the INFORMS Student Union, and is based on an earlier site created by the INFORMS Education Committee. The original lists of programs came largely from that site. Some additional programs were found through Michael Trick's Operations Research Page. Since that time, numerous individuals have emailed additions and updates. Thanks to all of you.
