Most fields of study culminate in a PhD. This level of educational achievement is the highest possible and has the highest number of career paths open to graduates. It is required to complete certain degree programs prior to enrolling in a PhD program.
What is a PhD in Operational Management? Operational management is a field of study that focuses on all the aspects necessary to keep a business running. This includes sales and marketing, managing employees, maintaining real estate, and more. Students of this kind of program typically take classes that prepare them to start their own businesses as entrepreneurs or work as primary managers in existing businesses.
There are many skills that people develop while studying operational management. Students tend to develop leadership skills, an understanding of business, and professional evaluation abilities. These skills can be hugely beneficial and often help graduates to earn higher salaries.
The cost of enrolling in a PhD program in operational management varies quite a bit. This is why doing research in advance is so important. Many factors affect the fees and tuition, including the school and program you choose as well as the country you are studying in.
The primary career option available to those who graduate with a PhD in Operational Management is operations manager. A person in this position handles nearly all aspects of a business’s operation, from sales to employees. Other kinds of managerial positions may be available as well, including human resource manager or marketing manager. Finally, graduates may become consultants or planning specialists, entrepreneurs who start their own businesses, or, after a period of time, CEOs.

PhD in Industrial Engineering and Operations Management
Portable design and operation of modern industrial and service systems require integration of human, material, equipment and financial resources. In recent years this integration has become tighter due to the inclusion of information technology and resulted in more complex systems. Industrial Engineering research focuses on quantitative analysis, synthesis, and management of such complex systems. The alienated faculty members come from the Industrial Engineering department of the College of Engineering, the Operations and Information Systems group of the College of Administrative Sciences and Economics, and other related fields. Our research areas are diverse, including Logistics, Supply Chain Management, Service Operations, Production Systems, Stochastic Processes, Financial Engineering, Mathematical Programming, Data Mining, and Bioinformatics. The programs are built on the basic methodologies of operations research and their applications in manufacturing, distribution and service industries. Graduates of the M.S. program have been placed in respectable Ph.D. programs in North America, Europe, and Turkey as well as various professional positions in the industry since 2003. The first graduates of the Ph.D. program were produced in 2009 and they are pursuing their academic career either through a post-doc program or by joining respectable universities in Turkey or abroad. While our M.S. program provides a strong foundation for academic studies in terms of Industrial Engineering knowledge as well as developing research skills, our Ph.D. program provides advanced education emphasizing the discovery of new scientific knowledge through extensive research experience. The aim is to produce competitive research results and educate the... [-]
