Our Operations Management Department prepares students to pursue careers in consulting, finance, healthcare, retail, transportation, human resources, computer science, marketing, technology, government, and the nonprofit world.
The department comprises two disciplines:
Operations Management—a multi-dimensional, highly integrative business area that uses both quantitative analytical skills and cognitive problem solving to examine how organizations execute their missions and goals
Business Analytics—which uses business data to guide the decision-making and competitive capabilities in an enterprises, examining what has happened, predicting what will happen, and exploring what should happen
Our faculty are dedicated teachers and researchers who leverage innovative approaches in addition to the traditional blend of case studies, lectures, and texts. Through executive presentations and course projects at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, prominent members of the business community often integrate into the classroom experience.

In spring 2017, a team of undergraduates spearheaded a $10.2 million plan to renovate the long-shuttered Everett Square Theatre in Boston, as part of the Carroll School’s Field Projects in Real Estate class. Now, key members of the community are taking action on the plan, according to The Boston Globe.
