Management with Operations Management Option, Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration (BAB)
Students interested in learning about management should consider the Management major. Within this major students can follow three options: General Business Option, Human Resource Management Option and Operations Management Option.
The Operations Management Option is for students interested in the daily management activities of an organization. It prepares students with techniques and objectives to help service oriented and/or manufacturing oriented organizations achieve their objectives. Topics that are covered include productivity measures, demand forecasting, location analysis, layout analysis, process choice, scheduling, quality management and supply chain management.
