If you are interested in getting a hands on approach to your experience at Foster, the Operations Club will you give you the best exposure to the way companies actually work. We routinely schedule tours of local companies including Nucor Steel, PACCAR, Boeing, Amazon, and Nintendo. We also bring in top professionals from the Northwest to educate the Foster MBA community on interesting topics related to Supply Chain Management, Logistics, Operations, Transportation, and much more.
No matter your function or field, from marketing to finance, and tech to consumables, the field of operations management will play a large role in your education and career. Operations is the study of the movement of products as well as the processes that define the business, and in order to plan your strategy wisely you must first understand these concepts. After all, how would you plan to successfully market your products if you don’t understand the structure of your supply chain and how products are delivered to customers? From small businesses providing consulting services to large manufacturers producing heavy machines, operations management is a critical element leading to sustainable competitive advantage.
Our organization has extensive contacts with both the business school and regional business communities. Across all club activities, we strive to facilitate professional and social networking along with interesting operations management experiences.
