Beginning September 1, 2010, the Decision Sciences department will change its name to Operations Management. This means that all courses which begin with the abbreviation DSCI will begin with the abbreviation OPMT beginning September 1. All business students must take DSCI 310 – which will now be OPMT 310. All Operations Management majors who are required to take DSCI 320, 330, 340, 350, & 480 will be required to take OPMT 320, 33, 340, 350, & 480. If you have already taken a DSCI course, you will be allowed to use this course for its OPMT equivalent. If you have any questions, contact your Business Program Advisor.

Public Safety asked us to pass on some important information to students taking morning classes in Minneapolis. Here it is:
The 9:20 shuttle to Minneapolis is regularly overbooked. The extra shuttle that leaves St. Paul at 9:10 is now a larger bus and is very open. If you can adjust your schedule to catch that bus it will be a better experience for you and will also help alleviate some of the back-up that has been happening.
Attention all undergraduate students…
