Operations Management provides students with a strong managerial and applied problem-solving background. Industry experienced instructors work closely in small, focused classes that prepare students to address issues related to productivity, supply chain management, quality assurance, and operations logistics.

Operations Managers successfully blend the art of management with applied science through creativity, people skills, rational analysis and application of technology. Particular emphasis is directed toward development of skills in problem solving, project management, communication, and managing effectively in team-based work environments.


Unique to Operations Management is the study of LEAN and Six Sigma management. By choosing specific math and technical elective courses and completing an approved senior project, students can earn a Six Sigma green belt certification without requiring additional coursework. 

Green Belt Certificate Requirements
