Online Operations Management Degrees and Careers


Operations managers are often doing their best work when no one knows they're there. That's because operations managers are responsible for the smooth functioning of production, inventory management, plant operations, and resource development.

The effect of operations managers can be seen at some of the nation's biggest corporations. Apple has succeeded due to an ability to redefine digital content platforms, while ramping up the volume of hardware and software production to meet demand for iPhones and iPads, according to AMR Research. AMR also commends Wal-Mart for innovation in its supply chain structure to maintain everyday low prices and diversify its supplier base in emerging markets.

Education and Career Opportunities in Operations Management

Degrees in operations management can often be found at the master's level as part of an MBA program or at the PhD level. Doctoral degrees in operations management prepare you to become a corporate consultant, professor, and researcher. Master's degrees in operations management may be a part of a business school or can be earned as a master's in engineering management. Either degree should allow you to successfully oversee projects from concept to execution. Engineering managers are trained to focus on processes and develop efficient methods to scale out production or resource utilization.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects engineering management jobs to increase in coming years and reported a median annual salary of $117,000 for these professionals in 2009.
