Management 3325 - Production and Operations Management
Welcome to Operations Management! This field of study has applications in every area
especially accounting, finance,
marketing, and actuarial science. My overall
objective for you is that you will apply at least three of the course topics in the first
three years after graduation and significantly advance your career because of these
applications. To do this, you must study the assigned material before class, until the concepts are familiar to you.
As a result, we can have meaningful discussions in class about how to apply the topics.
