Operations Management

The Bachelor of Science degree in Management prepares students for careers as professional managers in corporations, governmental organizations, and small businesses. In addition, the program provides a foundation for graduates who wish to pursue advanced degrees in business and public administration, law, and the social sciences. The curriculum gives students a broad exposure to the functional areas of business and allows each to select an emphasis area in a subject that is germane to individual career interests. The Management curriculum provides an examination of the social, legal, political, and economic environments in which organizations must operate; an understanding of the functional areas of business and their interrelationships; and a knowledge of behavioral science, applied statistics, and mathematics as they relate to organizational problem-solving. The program is accredited by AACSB International.

The Department of Management offers a Bachelor of Science degree that allows students to choose from one of eight different emphasis areas.

Take the opportunity to understand strategy, design, planning and control in both manufacturing and service organizations.

"The Operations Management emphasis area prepares students to deal with management decisions related to production, manufacturing or the provision of services. The Operations Management emphasis focuses on teaching students the strategy, design, planning and control for both manufacturing and service organizations. The first operations management course (MGT 3900) covers the role of operations management as well as some of the general concepts, tools and techniques for managing the operations function. This course is especially helpful if you are unsure what field of business you want to pursue. After taking the course, you should have a good idea of whether Operations Management is for you. Throughout my time in the emphasis, some of the areas that I have enjoyed learning about the most include LEAN operations management, statistical process control and continuous improvement to name just a few. Through my internships, I have been able to successfully apply many of these concepts and positively impact the company I was at. If you are looking to work outside of a cubicle and think that operations management is for you, then this emphasis is a great way to prepare yourself." - Dave McClintock
