Operations management is the study of transformation processes: how to get things done and produced, with minimal time, effort, and cost—and maximum quality. The result? The effective use of resources: people, money, machinery, facilities, material, and information.

Operations management is at the center of an organization. It's a growing field that will draw on your skills in communications, computer technology, decision-making, planning, problem-solving, quantitative methods, and team building—with career paths such as:

  • business process analyst
  • distribution management
  • healthcare management
  • import/export operations
  • logistics
  • purchasing
  • supply chain management
  • quality management
  • transportation

Your opportunities can be global, working for and with suppliers all over the world.
