Map and Directions


The Department of Operations Management of the University of South Africa is proud to host the African Operations Management Conference on 2 – 4 October in Muldersdrift, Gauteng. Our theme for 2017 is “Competitive Operations Management for Driving Africa Forward” and the aim of the conference is to promote exactly that by bringing together industry giants and experienced academics in this unique international setting. Not only is networking with national and international delegates encouraged and facilitated, but the conference also serves as a forum for the exchange of ideas, concepts and research. Our vision is to be in the front line and to drive Africa forward by harnessing the knowledge and experience within the field of Operations Management.
