Operations managers plan and control the day-to-day business of running a company from the ground up. They are involved in planning construction or renovation of company sites; they help hire and train new personnel, control costs and overhead, and help formulate company policy. An operation manager’s efficient handling of facilities and personnel is crucial to company success; they are responsible for running a “tight ship”. Almost all business students will take classes in operations management. Degree courses may include technology management, statistics and probability, costing, business relationships and more. The field will always be important- companies will always need operations managers to look after day-to-day operations and to cut costs internally. Most graduates start out in entry-level management positions and may advice to chief operations manager or even CEO or COO of the company.
