In the Operations Management minor, students study the transformation process where inputs and the efforts of human resources combine to create a product or service. Here, topics of importance include advanced operations, inventory management, purchasing, and logistics. The Operations Management minor prepares students for entry-level positions such as a production planner, buyer, or inventory analyst. A student declaring an Operations Management minor may not declare a Management minor. Non-business majors will require extensive prerequisite work above these 18 credits.
Students must attain a 2.0 or higher in each course that serves as a prerequisite to a subsequent Business course. (Refer to the course description for specific prerequisites.) Failure to attain a 2.0 in prerequisite courses may lengthen the time to graduation.
