Operations and Logistics
By combining operations and logistics, students learn how the total flow of goods, services and information within and between firms can be managed effectively and efficiently. Our faculty in this area teach students how to develop processes that facilitate efficient and cost-effective flow through a variety of supply chains.
The operations portion of this specialization teaches students general management and technical skills in areas such as quality, operations planning and control systems, and operations strategy. The logistics segment of the specialization addresses current issues and topics in the management of the flow of a product through the supply chain. In addition to the foundational curriculum in logistics and operations, Fisher offers innovative coursework in lean management, six-sigma principles, and supply chain management.
