Operations, Information & Decisions: General Track, BS

Computer-based management systems and analytic approaches to decision making are increasingly vital to effective management in a range of industries across public and private sectors. As organizations develop and implement sophisticated decision-support systems, they increase the demand for managers who have the expertise to understand, create, and profitably exploit rapidly developing management technology. There is also a growing demand for skilled professionals who can effectively manage the operations encompassing the manufacturing and distribution of products and services.

The Operations,Information and Decisions curriculum prepares students to meet these challenges by providing a rigorous foundation of coursework across different but complementary disciplines, including decision processes, information systems, and operations management/management science.
