Operations that meet or exceed customers’ and other stakeholders’ expectations are critical to both service and manufacturing organizations’ success. This is especially true in increasingly complex domestic and global environments. Realizing this goal requires effective leadership and management from those with operations-specific knowledge and skills. The Bachelor of Science in operations management program provides students the opportunity to develop competencies in operations management practices some of which include logistics management, workforce and performance management, quality and risk management, supply chain management, negotiation and conflict resolution, and data analysis and reporting. Emphasis is also placed on operations management as an organizational strategy and the ethical, legal, and socially responsible behaviors expected of operations managers. Throughout the program, students are offered opportunities to explore the application of operations management in different service and manufacturing industries, and they select one type of organization and/or industry as a focus for their capstone project. Graduates have practical, marketable operations management knowledge and skills grounded in industry-accepted theories and practices to help them enter and/or progress in a competitive job market, while building a solid theoretical foundation for potential graduate studies.
