This Zicklin School of Business specialization provides students with the conceptual foundations, analytic tools, and strategic perspectives necessary to manage operations in the service sector. All courses use problems and cases drawn from such industries as retailing, banking, transportation, insurance, and health care to illustrate material that traditionally focuses only on manufacturing. Students learn techniques to improve efficiency, enhance customer satisfaction, and reduce cost. They also learn the strategic implications and unique role of services.

The production of both tangible goods and intangible services requires pragmatic management of a wide spectrum of operations. The courses in this major provide training in the rational, systematic approach to management planning, decision making, and control. Quantitative models and methods are integrated with case studies in courses on management information systems, production planning, capacity planning, inventory control, facility and materials management, quality control, and productivity management.
