The Operations Management (OM) Major is designed to educate students on the theories, principles and practices of strategic, tactical and operational issues. The OM major is eclectic, drawing from areas such as: Statistics, Economics, Accounting, Marketing, Human Resources and Finance and prepares students to assume jobs at the middle management level in areas that cover strategic, tactical and operational decisions.
The OM Major covers both quantitative and qualitative disciplines. While OM can be highly quantitative, the OM Major at The University of West Indies, Mona – Mona School of Business and Management strives for a balance between quantitative and qualitative disciplines.
