Hi Everyone,

We are current students studying at Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University. Our Program is Operations Research & Supply Chain Management (in short, ORSC). ORSC is a STEM accredited program, which allows an OPT extension up to 24 months. This means you may be eligible for up to three years of work in the United States without a work visa. Visit the U.S. government's website for more information on the official website.

This article is a brief introduction including: course related issues, living arrangements, on-campus and off-campus jobs and other program related FAQs. We hope this article will be helpful for any related issue and question pertaining to our school, program, life and so on. We also welcome students to send us private emails that contain program specific queries. We hope to provide all the information you need for making your journey at Case Western Reserve University as smooth as possible.Very HappySmile

If there is any question, please see our official website of our program.
All the most official and updated information is on the official website.

1. On campus jobs.

TA: Teaching Assistant (Grader).
Work for professors, take classes or correct answer papers and earn a minimum of $10/hr (Max. work limit is 20 hours/week). If you have the interest to teach some of the software skills you possess to your classmates and juniors, we welcome you to do so (with the permission of the professors; after reviewing the content and the slides)

GA: Graduate Assistant
Work with the admissions office to help future students. Assist admissions administrators and faculty with planning and carrying out events, including marketing promotion projects, collaboration projects with overseas higher education institutions and other assigned special events.

Others: You can also find on campus jobs at the library, gym, dental, medical, law and business schools. CWRU has very few Indians, which makes life easier to find on-campus jobs.

2. Admission statistics:

In the term beginning Fall 2015, 278 applications were submitted. Of that number, we admitted 115 into the program; 57 of those admitted students fully matriculated. For the Fall 2016 start of term, we currently have 241 submitted applications. We have extended an offer to 101 students and so far 19 have committed to the program. At the time these numbers were pulled, the deadline for the second round of deposits has not passed and the interviews for round 3 have not started. We are looking for 50 students to fill the class this coming year.

3. Scholarship information

Our school offers merit-based scholarships. Important factors that are considered are GPA, test scores, pre-requisite grades, essay content, recommendation letter content, and interview. Ranges of scholarship can vary between 10% to 50%. In 2015, the average admitted student received 16% scholarship. So far for this coming 2016 year, the average scholarship given out has been nearly 21%.

5. Education and curriculum at Weatherhead:

ORSC program at Weatherhead is an enriching academic experience that has the potential to offer exposure to operational aspects involved in manufacturing process coupled with entire supply chain ranging from sourcing to shipping and marketing to end users. It also, involves industry simulations that provide real exposure in an industry/ business setting. The course involves getting students to visualize manufacturing process by taking them to industrial visits. After the field study, most of the students can get a Six sigma green belt certification. The requirement for the belt is that you should get A or B in Six Sigma class and meet certain GPA requirements in specific courses. All ORSC students have a chance to get the belt; but not everyone will get it.

You will take this course together with students from the MEM and MBA programs. In addition to this, ORSC also has a operations club that actively conducts speaker sessions, guest lectures, networking events (aimed at connecting with industry people for job opportunities) and operations quizzes/games. It can also involve unpaid projects for non-profit organizations.

From Professor Alireza Kabirian
“The students in this course should complete a real industry project. Every summer, I contact a lot of companies in Northeast Ohio to call for projects related in continuous improvement. Attached is the Call for Project from last year. We obtained 44 projects last year from about 35 companies. The students of MEM, MBA, or ORSC who meet some GPA requirement and get A or B in Six Sigma will get a Green Belt Certification.”

SAP workshop:
"Each spring semester we offer a three-week SAP workshop outside of class time for our students interested in learning more about the enterprise resource planning software."

Each year, ORSC program conducts several seminars to give the students an insight of the industry. The purpose of this talk is to give our MSM students an understanding of what it is like to apply Operations Research and Supply Chain Management in the real world and how doing so is different from what you are learning in your classes. What is more, we have plant tours related to our courses. This year we will go to Swagelok Corp at their Solon Manufacturing facility. This activity will help us see in action many of the methodologies and concepts learned about in coursework.

6. Tuition and living expense.

*Tuition and other fees are subject to change. Living and other expenses are approximate and will be different for each person.

7. Full time positions in a graphical way.

Matthew Maloney, the director of the ORSC program is in charge of creating job opportunities for current and former students. “Yes, we stay connected with the students who graduate. We remember and want to help you succeed in life.”

Develop experiential learning opportunities for ORSC students including internships and corporate projects that foster a mutually beneficial experience for our students and corporate partners. Work with our ORSC alumni to provide our students with a resource to gain insight into the program, internship programs and post graduate work.

The latest information of fall ‘15 graduates employment situation

From Matthew Maloney:
“As far as this year's numbers go, at this point we are 4-5 jobs ahead of where we were last year. Organizations who have hired from our program include Cardinal Health, Progressive Insurance, Goodyear (2 students), Cleveland Clinic (2 students), JoAnn Fabrics, MTD Products, Niagara Bottling, Stanley-Black & Decker just to name a few. We have two students working in LA (few others I am told moved there and are looking for work but are not in contact with me) 3 in Columbus and the majority in the Cleveland/Akron area so far. The U.S. Government has held up the process of students finding jobs because of the fact that they are 30-40 days behind with issuing EAD cards.

“As we have every year, there is a sizable portion of our class that moves back home to pursue job opportunities and the two I've heard from have landed jobs in China with top firms Accenture and IBM. So that speaks loudly to how well our students are doing at home. Another had to move home to fulfill a military obligation and others because they had no intention of staying. So at this point it is premature to be able to give you percentages of the whole that are working. In numbers we have about 24 and a few that have outstanding offers that are contingent on them receiving their EAD cards or having the Immigration Council approve specifics to the job offer.”

9. Safety on campus

The campus of Case Western Reserve University is in a well-protected and well-lit neighborhood of Cleveland. There are six separate police and security departments protecting and patrolling campus. In addition to the security and call boxes on campus, the school is patrolled by the CWRU Police, the University Circle Police, the University Hospital Police, the Cleveland Clinic Police, and the Cleveland Police. The Weatherhead School of Management has security at the front desk every hour the building is open.
