Operations & Supply Chain Management
Operations & Supply Chain Management (OSCM)
Operations Management (OM) is the core of an organization, central to its ability to compete effectively. It deals with the management of all activities that are directly involved in the acquisition and utilization of resources, production, and the distribution of goods and services.
These activities are integrated and managed using quantitative decision-making the tools and models developed by Management Science (MS), based on techniques from operations research. The efficient integration of information and processes across suppliers, vendors, manufacturers and distributors is known as Supply Chain Management (SCM).
US News and World Report describes SCM as one of the 20 hottest job tracks of the 21st century.
An MBA or BS degree with a concentration in OSCM will equip students with the skills and ability to manage highly complex systems across a wide variety of organizations. Careers include consultants, supply chain managers or analysts, production managers, logistics planners, purchasing managers, quality control managers, packaging experts and trade negotiators.
