MBA in Operation Management

Students in an operations management MBA program learn to troubleshoot and develop solutions to supply chain and logistical problems. Operations management means management of production activities of a firm. An operations manager is expected to maintain smoothness in the production process, maintain harmony among various departments of the firm, to use the raw material efficiently and to efficiently manage the inventories. Hence, an operations manager is an essential asset to any production house. They can also develop a multidisciplinary knowledge base comprised of skills from the finance, statistics and marketing fields.

An MBA degree program with a concentration in operations management is designed to provide the training and knowledge required for careers in supply chain management, production operations and service procedures. Students in these programs are commonly taught to apply analytically, communications, research and leadership skills to business logistics.

Graduates might go on to hold a variety of professional business positions. These could include:

  • Operations manager
  • Operations analyst
  • Supply chain manager
  • Management consultant


An average salary for a fresh graduate equipped with a degree in engineering ranges from Rs 3 to 5 lakhs per annum. On acquiring enhanced qualifications like MBA, operations managers with an experience of three to five years can draw an average salary of Rs 6 to 9 lakhs per annum.


The pool of operations managers in India is severely constrained due to enhanced economic activity witnessed during past two decades. The shortage of skilled manpower in critical sectors like manufacturing, warehousing, supply chain and logistics has also been recognised by the government. Due to this shortage at all levels, a professional with requisite skill sets has many options across the spectrum of industries from infrastructure to retailing to services. With quantum increase expected in the manufacturing sector, the options would only increase for the professionals in this field.
