Today's operations manager must oversee and understand a wide range of business activities associated with coordinating resources and effective delivery of value to global customers. To succeed you must optimize material, product, information, and financial flows through a global network of suppliers and customers. Careers in this area obviously require the skills provided by the operations courses. Less obvious, however, one must understand human assets and strategy to put operations in context. Financial modeling and analysis are also key tools of any good operations manager.
Elective course offerings are subject to change; courses identified with an asterisk are not expected to be offered in the current academic year.
