Major advisers: Gene Fliedner, T.J. Wharton
The major in operations management provides a strong managerial and technical education to students interested in the field of operations management (e.g., manufacturing planning and control, supply-chain management, project management, process management and quality management). The program will provide students with the fundamental knowledge they need to work effectively in operations functions, as well as advanced knowledge about best practices, current technologies, tools and their application, and leadership skills necessary to operate in a globally diverse and competitive marketplace.
To fulfill the requirements for the major in operations management, students must be admitted to major standing in operations management, complete the core program and complete at least 22 credits, as specified below, with a grade of 2.0 or better in each major course. A grade of 2.0 or better must be achieved in POM 343 and in each prerequisite for an operations management course before an operations management major, or any Oakland University student, may begin work in that operations management course.
