Learn about the Operations Concentration

Operations is concerned with the production and delivery of both physical goods and services. Operations may be viewed as an organization’s way of aligning global corporate strategy with implementable day-to-day activities and actions. While it is critical to understand how to provide the right capital for the firm, how to promote demand, and how to manage human resources, it is equally important to master the knowledge of how to facilitate production and service delivery and ensure that the corresponding processes are aligned with the overall corporate strategy.
