Business Operations Management
The Business Operations Management course will offer students a structured approach to support individuals as they and their organisations manage activities within the production of goods and services, utilizing human and material resources. Business operations management is a key skill and knowledge area in an era where organisations are undergoing big, complex and interdependent changes in a business environment where so much of what was certain in terms of business models, market forces and required talent capabilities have been rendered obsolete. By learning business operations management skills and how to lead operations as an essential part of running any business the individual can contribute positively to a key differentiating factor between the value proposition their organisation offers its customers and other companies competing in the same area.
