As somebody who has an MS in operations research, I would suggest additional courses: Design of experimants and non-parametric statistics. Exposure to six sigma.

While that already is certainly an awe-inspiring curriculum, why stop there? One could add a course in BI and a course in data warehousing tools. I would also allow students with a B.S. in mathematics or statistics to place out of the basic probability and statistical methods courses, so they could also choose more electives.
