A Career in Operations Management

Operations managers plan, direct, and coordinate company operations. Responsibilities include policy making, managing daily operations, and planning materials use and human resources. Successful operations managers are highly organized, able to communicate clearly and persuasively, and are highly analytical. If you want to succeed as an operations manager, you must also possess leadership skills, self-confidence, motivation, decisiveness, flexibility, sound business judgment, and determination.

Education for an Operations Management Career

Generally, operations managers need at least a bachelor's degree in operations research or operations management science or a related field and considerable experience. However, more opportunities are available if you have a master's or doctoral degree. Positions are also filled from within a company through promotion. Due to the prestigious level of these positions, tight competition exists for hungry applicants.
