Message from the Chair

Samuel Graves web

The Operations Management Department consists of dedicated teachers and active and productive scholars in two mutually supportive disciplines:

  • Operations Management
  • Quantitative Analysis

This unique combination of disciplines covers the management of operations in both the goods and service producing sectors and the effective development and use of analytical methods. We are clearly managerial in our orientation, but also embrace the analytic skills required for successful practice. Our courses recognize the importance of environmental, ethical, and social issues in management decision making. Our teaching methods include lecutres, field studies, case studies, and analytical modeling.

Our courses emphasize analysis and policy formulation and are explicitly designed to deliver the skills and knowledge required by successful managers in today’s competitive environment.

Course work in these areas is suitable for those pursuing careers in consulting, manufacturing, financial services, health care services, retail, transportation, technology, government, and not-for-profit organizations. Courses in our disciplines both intersect with and transcend the usual functional areas and are appropriate for those with primary interests in Accounting, Finance, Marketing, Computer Science or Human Resource Management.

Please feel free to contact us directly with any questions you may have.
