BUSI 650 Course Syllabus C OURSE S YLLABUS BUSI 650 O PERATIONS M ANAGEMENT C OURSE D ESCRIPTION This course provides graduate-level instruction regarding the concepts and analytic methods that are useful in understanding the management of a firm’s operations. Special emphasis will be placed on familiarizing the student with the problems and issues confronting operations managers, and providing the student with language, concepts, insights and tools to deal with these issues in order to gain competitive advantage through operations. Because the course deals with the management of “processes,” it applies to both for-profit and non-profit organizations, to both service and manufacturing organizations, and to virtually any functional area or industry. (Crosslisted with BMIS 650) R ATIONALE Operations Management is decision making involving the design, planning, and control of the many factors that affect operations. Operations managers apply ideas and knowledge to enhance product quality, improve customer service, increase productivity, manage supply chains, reduce costs, and improve flexibility to meet rapidly changing customer needs.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
