The Marketing and Operations Management joint concentration emphasizes the importance of partnership between marketing and operations for new product development (NPD) in light of the fact that NPD is a critical company effort highly dependent on internal innovation processes. Given the complexity of these processes, the insights provided by cross-disciplinary collaboration can be particularly beneficial in many efforts including: creativity-based new product development, innovation in service manufacturing and new service development, customer response to next-generation products, the use of conjoint analysis in engineering designs, platform-owner market entry, and design-intensive innovation.

The concentration gives students a choice of several complementary courses within the Marketing and OID departments.  The concentration requires a total of four course units – two course units from each department. NOTE: All OIDD courses were listed as OPIM until Spring 2016. One of the courses must be OIDD 4150 (Product Design), MKTG 2210 (New Product Management) or MKTG 2620 (New Product Development).  Each of these three courses includes a project that is relevant to the joint concentration.

Courses below are 1 CU unless otherwise noted.
