The study assesses the training and education of operations research (OR) in Jordan and contrasts this to the requirements of companies. Three questionnaires were used in this study. The first was directed to the practitioners in all quoted Jordanian industrial companies (86). The second was circulated to all relevant educators in Jordanian Universities (51). The third was presented to a random sample of students studying OR courses in the Universities (168). Questions addressed are: Is OR education relevant to the needs of the practitioners? Is there is a gap between what is taught and what is applied? This results in a few simple proposals whose adoption should enhance OR courses currently delivered.
