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?

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.

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. ”
