Before 1990, Production and Material Management was offered to students following main degree programmes of the Faculty of Management Studies and Commerce. In 1990 the subject was upgraded to Operations Management and it was taught in almost all degree programmes offered by the Faculty as a main functional area in management until 2001. Since the formation of the new Department of Information Technology and Decision Sciences in 2001, the Operations Management subject was offered in the Management Common Programme of the Faculty. The initiative to establish a degree programme and a department for this field is taken in 2002 and the university approved the proposal in 2003. The establishment of the new degree programme, Operations and Technology Management was done by separating the Department of Decision Sciences in September 2007. The first batch of students was admitted to the new degree programme in 2008.
