Operations Management

Bachelor of Commerce (BComm)

Why choose Operations Management?


Operations management scholars ask questions such as: What resources are needed to create a product? How will quality be measured? What is the process hierarchy?

Operations Management oversees all activities directly related to making a product or providing a service. This program will give you an introduction to operations management concepts, provide an understanding of systems for continuous improvement and introduce analytical aids for managerial decision-making. You'll complete formal presentations, live projects, group projects and various case studies during the course of your degree.

Career opportunities

​As a graduate of the operations management program, you'll be prepared for global career opportunities in the areas of operations management, process improvement, quality assurance and more. A degree in commerce can also be used as a stepping-stone to graduate studies or another professional degree such as law, medicine, veterinary medicine, or education.

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.
