Operations Management is concerned with managing operations in manufacturing and service organizations. It involves the management of manpower, materials, facilities, technology and equipment for the efficient conversion of resources into quality products and services, as well as their distribution.

Students in operations management are interested in turning something raw into something finished, solving problems, working with people, entrepreneurship, and leaderships. Students will learn materials and inventory management, quality management, supply chain management, and logistics.
