I was attracted to operations management because it is a rapidly growing, interdisciplinary field that focuses on understanding the business as a whole – from beginning to end, supplier to customer. Many operations management courses feature interactive case simulations to demonstrate how textbook concepts play out in real businesses. I found the project management course particularly interesting for this reason. We were charged with managing every aspect of a simulated construction project over the entire semester. My operations management degree has acted as an excellent springboard to my career in management consulting.
