Organizational Management Project
The Organizational Management Project (OMP) is the major integrative learning activity of the MBA Program, and offers a rich learning opportunity through the application of theory to a real-world situation. By applying theory to a real world-situation, completion of the OMP enhances the skills of the learner and provides a valuable contribution to the client or host organization.
More specifically, in the OMP, learners will examine a management problem, conduct academic and best case research, analyze options, and provide recommendations and a high-level implementation plan in a final report for the client or host organization. The management problem to be researched and analyzed is identified in collaboration with an organization. MBA learners may choose to conduct their OMP with an external organization, or it can be conducted within a learner’s own workplace provided the project is not related to the learner’s own position and does not involve his/her direct reports. The MBA Program Office will also work with learners to identify potential projects with corporate or not-for-profit organizations that have indicated their interest in being involved with our program in this capacity.
BENEFIT TO HOST ORGANIZATION
A broad range of small, medium-sized, large and multinational clients and host organizations have benefited from the substantive, practically oriented management OMPs completed by learners from Royal Roads, including, for example technology companies, resort operators, wholesale/retail operations, non-profit organizations, and municipal, provincial and federal government agencies.
