BBA Operations Management 工商管理學士(營運管理學)

OM

Short Description

The BBA Operations Management (OM) program focuses on the effective management of resources and business processes that produce and deliver the goods and services for all kinds of organizations. Our program emphasizes real business applications of management concepts and quantitative analysis to the design, planning, control, and improvement of business operations.

OM students acquire fundamental knowledge across business disciplines at the beginning of their studies to prepare themselves to pursue advanced management concepts as well as the techniques that are essential in managing and making sound decisions in complex business processes and supply chain operations.

The BBA OM program recognizes the importance of application-based learning. Business case studies and company projects are often incorporated in our courses which require students to bridge the concepts with real business practices. Our Department has an extensive connection to initiate projects with corporates. OM students benefit from the connection that they will have access to real business data and people in an organization to conduct analysis and make recommendations.

The training of technical competence, analytical ability, communication skills and leadership skills prepares our students to thrive in the rapidly-growing OM employment sector. OM specialists typically begin their careers in areas such as quality management, planning and control, project management and logistics.
