The Bachelor of Manufacturing Management (BMM) degree in Quality Management responds to increased employer demand for employees with a solid background in manufacturing techniques combined with a qualification in quality. Many companies that outsource production discover the need for more stringent quality assurance of products made in foreign countries, causing an increased need for graduates with a good grounding in Quality Management. The high demand is concomitant with above average starting salaries.

The Quality Management degree was designed with learner outcomes designed to:

  1. Meet the employability requirements of industry;
  2. Incorporate changing consumer interests, attitudes, and concerns for quality management;
  3. Offer students an attractive, well differentiated educational option to complete their bachelor level education;
  4. Utilize existing intellectual and physical resources.

The Quality Management program prepares graduates for employment in industry and public regulatory agencies. University of Minnesota, Crookston graduates have the knowledge and skills to contribute to the quality functions at their prospective employers. At present a search on the website of I Hire Quality Control yielded 1629 middle management positions in Quality Control/Assurance Management.

The Quality Management program is transfer friendly and an attractive option for Technical College graduates to complete their academic qualification to bachelor level. It is especially tailored to those individuals who would like to become part of the management team within their workplaces. The university recognizes the value of the technical skills that students acquired at other institutions and the experience they have gained during their careers. The right combination of communication and management skills and pertinent quality-related learning are added to prepare the students for future opportunities. The program is offered on campus and online to respond to the needs of busy working adults who cannot attend any of the classes.
