Default Re: Options after MBA in Operations Management

A candidate with a MBA in Operation Management would be able to look after a factory or other operations of the factory in a
better manner as compared to others due to their competency and knowledge regarding handling the operations of an
organization.Depending on the type of organization, one might be responsible for a few activities / regions in the initial
stages and consequently growing up to handling broader areas. This career involves handling a few plants/ vendors initially,
followed by the responsibility for an entire factory and eventually undertake a more strategic view like global sourcing /
alternate materials / imports etc.
Operations managers pursue careers in service organizations involved in activities such as banking, transportation, insurance, and government, as well as manufacturing firms involved in producing industrial and consumer products. Typical careers in operations management involve activities such as forecasting, supervision, purchasing, inventory planning and control, operations scheduling and control, process methods and planning, quality management, warehouse management, and production planning in diverse industries such as banking, manufacturing, and retailing. Career opportunities in operations management can also involve work in management consulting firms or the development of computer systems for planning and scheduling.

Hi Shayar,

Operations Management is a comprehensive production-related responsibility that includes Inventory Management, Vendor Development, and Purchase Management. It also includes areas that demand multi-disciplinary skills like SCM (Supply Chain Management) and ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning).

An MBA in Operations Management teaches students to manage the processes that lead to successful production and distribution of product(s) in any business organization. Students will learn to oversee manufacturing - product creation, development, production - and its distribution to sales outlets.

An MBA Programme in Operations & Supply Chain Management is designed to expand your knowledge of operational efficiencies and effectiveness, while satisfying customer requirements as skillfully as possible from the point-of-origin to the point-of-consumption. A candidate with an MBA in Operations Management would be able to look after a factory or other operations of the factory in a better manner as compared to others due to their competency and knowledge regarding handling the operations of an organization.

Manufacturing is one of the most important areas for any product-based business. Management of large as well as small manufacturing companies involves various production and operational techniques and theories. These skills are especially useful for engineering graduates. The career options in the field of Operations Management are: -
  • Quality Control
  • Material Management
  • Productivity Improvement
  • Inventory Control
  • Production Planning
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Logistics
The focus of Operations Specialists is not engineering problems, but managerial implications of engineering problems. The specific skills required are behavioural, technical, and statistical. These techniques are largely applied to manufacturing organizations. There are a few consultancies that work with such organizations in this functional area, thereby offering attractive career opportunities to MBAs.

In Pharma, you can have the following career options: -
  • Pharmaceutical Inventory Management
  • Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Management
  • Pharmaceutical Quality Control
  • Total Quality Control
  • Inventory Management
  • Statistical Process Control
  • ISO 9000 Series Quality System Standard
These should give you a broad idea.

Love,
Fiza.

Thumbs up Re: Options after MBA in Operations Management

Hi All,

Sorry for the intrusion. I was unable to post a new thread. I did not know how to do it.

Any how I believe my intrusion is somewhat justified given that I am a guy looking at MBA operations as one of my career options.

I am B.Tech Mechanical guy working in a reputed software firm as Process & Service Offering for about 3 years. I am pursuing my MBA thru ICFAI. I am done till 3 groups and now I am asked to choose a stream for my MBA. My previous Program Manager (My Guru) advised Operations as a good option given my career prospects and given its wide scope. Can you please suggest me on what stream can be apt given my qualification and experience.

Thanks
Ravi Peri.

Hi,

Operations Management is important in any industry. It takes care of all operations within a company like manufacturing process, material purchase, inventory, quality, logistics etc. etc.

Operations management professionals are suitable for many different sectors. They fit in to the manufacturing sector, construction, retail, aviation, logistics, infrastructure, automotive, oil and gas, FMCG, pharma and railways to name a few. With the current growth rate in India Operations management is going to grow tremendously too.

I myself am pursuing a dual MBA in Marketing and Finance at Delhi Business School. Similarly there are dual MBA courses with operations which give hands on experience on ERP/SAP which prepare you for the industry.

Also I can tell you with my experience at the Delhi Business School, that Its really great to be taught by excellant faculty here at full time MBA. I have experienced a complete overhaul in my communication skills and my Written skills.

This focus on getting the students industry ready has helped me secure a summer placement at HSBC global!!

Hope this was helpful. Feel free to contact me for any queries.. Regarding operations management or DBS.

Dear all,

Thanks for the starting this thread.

I am a first year MBA student. I am little confused on my specialization in the second year. I am interested in operations, but my Background is B.Sc (Chemistry).

Though I am a science(Chemistry) graduate, but have a prior work experience of three years as Systems Engineer in Tata Consultancy Services (I was provided extensive IT training by TCS through a program called Ignite designed for Science graduates to fit into the IT and our job and designation was at par with the B.E and B.Techs).

How ever, I came to know from few of my seniors and classmates that, Operations is for Engineers and companies prefer students with engineering background during the placements.

Also few companies coming for Operations in SIP had their Criteria mentioned as Engineering Background.

All this has made me confused and have started pondering over to switch to marketing. Kindly enlighten me if Operations for a Science Graduate would be a good option with current industry situations and placement scenarios.

The upcoming new trend is MBA in operations management. It brings out onesí ability in decision-making and helps him to understand the basic theories involved in making the industrial sector. Analytical approach, innovative ideas, thoughtful ideas and sharp qualities in management, this will enable the candidate to become the leaders of tomorrow.

You would easily get opportunities to work in planning and policymaking, motivation, evaluation, product development and inventory control. If your company large enough, you could focus on overall management or on a small specific area of the supply chain. Supply chain and logistics MBA graduates get to work as general operations managers, responsible for budgets, hiring and training employees as well as equipment procurement and policy development. They can also work as logistics engineers who coordinate the flow of materials, information, and products for an organization. You may also end up working in manufacturing development and operations managing in production planning, forecasting, quality control and process analysis or in service operations, working as internal consultants and quality analysts.In short, supply chain and operations is a rapidly evolving field ripe with new opportunities.
