MBA 545 Applied Operations Management

This course is designed to help students develop a deeper understanding of the conversion process by which organizations transform raw materials into finished goods or services.  Included topics (operations strategy, as well as process, capacity, inventory, and project management) provide students with the ability to describe and understand, measure and analyze, and develop plans for changing the operating processes within a department/organization.  The subject is approached from an interdisciplinary perspective, useful to managers in all phases of the business.  Classroom efforts focus on case studies, simulations, and self-reflection on how concepts learned might be applied within the student’s organization.
