Operations Management
 

OVERVIEW

Operations Management

Take notes from some of the world’s leading business experts and enterprises and benefit from direct exposure to the detail-oriented, fine-tuned Chinese operations management approach. Experience Chinese lifestyle, cuisine, and social culture while understand labor history and relate what you learn about U.S. labor history to labor practices in China. 

Through a variety of lectures, independent readings and multiple site visits, learn how to develop supplier, manufacturing, and distributions systems in a global setting. This program will implement an essential international component for the Lean Manufacturing, Supply Chain, Quality Management and Independent Study in Operations Management courses. Stay ahead of the professional game with international experience and management expertise.

Additionally, explore the evolution of meanings of “work,” “worker,” “employee,” “overseer/manager,” and “owner” in relation to race and ethnicity. Examine various perspectives about the U.S. economic and political system as labor issues from the early and modern periods of U.S. history while making comparisons to current conditions in China. Students are presented with a multitude of examples of conflicting primary sources, with multiple interpretations, and the means by which to evaluate them historically and personally reflect upon as they travel throughout China. 

Location: Hong Kong & China

From the highs of Victoria Peak to the shores of Aberdeen Harbor, one can spend as much or as little time as they wish exploring the many faces of Hong Kong. With a population of 7 million people but only 428 square miles of land, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated and exciting areas in the world.

Renowned for its expansive skyline and natural setting, Hong Kong is one of the world's leading financial capitals, a major business and cultural hub, and maintains a highly developed capitalist economy. It is a cosmopolitan center where east meets west and its distinctly cultural customs are reflected in its cuisine, cinema, music and traditions.
