Business Analytics (BA) and Operations & Supply Chain Management (OSCM) are Specialisations in the BBA and BBA(Accountancy), facebook.com/NUSBBA/ — Asia’s foremost undergrad managerial leadership development program that attracts top students from the world over. NUS Business students may freely declare for any specialisations, as soon as they begin their BBA (counterpart to our celebrated MBA, facebook.com/TheNUSMBA/).
Both Analytics & Operations require their experts to be technically proficient and professionally persuasive. Their methods are frequently beyond common understanding, so may not get implemented if senior decision makers cannot be convinced of their efficacies. Hence, soft skills are often known to triumph over elegant solutions. Good communication is a requirement rather than a mere convenience.
NUS BA and OSCM Specialisations are therefore carefully crafted in the business milieu to capably equip students, both in the quantitative and social domains, for the emergent data-analytic, technology-driven and individual-tailored economy. Top students may further be mentored in shaping their leadership mindsets through our The Way To Success program with en.CEOglobal.org.
You are warmly welcome to directly join our public forum facebook.com/groups/OpsBA to keep in touch, learn (by osmosis) of quickening advances together, pick up talking points for chats & interviews, and eventually be an owner-member of our cozy specialist community. You may then corporately develop to be transformative prime movers building innovative tech-centric enterprises globally!
Data inhabits the clouds-nesting economy, where being nimble and innovative are prerequisites for chasing actionable intelligence. Our BA Specialisation goes much beyond being a tools-based concentration suitable for the technically-inclined NUS students. The modules in this Specialisation are designed for students to pursue the data dimension of decision making from a leadership perspective. Building from the scaffolding of our BBA, students in this Specialisation learn to play the dual roles of the discerning data artist and the convincing data scientist.
Because BBA students can leverage on their contextual business insights, they will also be especially well prepared for professional roles exemplified by client-facing strategic consulting. Integrating their knowledge of finance, marketing, HR, operations, etc., they will learn to describe, diagnose, predict and prescribe using decision analytic tools. They thus practise to envisage the data types needed for resolving specific management concerns, select appropriate analytical devices to identify, monitor and address related performance issues, then effect optimal data-driven operational implementations.
In accounting, students similarly train to utilize BA techniques for detecting suspicious transactional patterns in practicable ways. Our BBA graduates will be valuable analytics advocates within their organizations, or externally for their clients’ establishments.
This Specialisation, facebook.com/groups/BASpec, is purposely fashioned for budding managers favoured with both verbal facility and quantitative affinity, plus not a little creative flair. Being innately curious, ingenious & enterprising, students strive to observe keenly, analyse soundly, and communicate cogently — i.e., to excel also in the “human layer”. High-performing students may study as a group for the edx.org/Microsoft-Professional-Program-Data-Science Certificate, the edx.org/microMasters/Business-Analytics Credential or the edx.org/microMasters/BerkeleyX-Marketing-Analytics Credential. Graduates could also further apply for our MsBA.nus.edu to complete a Master’s degree.
Please join us to become data strategists and corporate experts in intelligence cycle management, and then change agents for the world economy!
Operations Management answers the question “What’s the most competitive way to deliver our goods/services?” Hence, it employs what is sometimes called The Science of Better — an unrelenting focus on improving systematic efficiency in performing the diverse functions of any organization, by integrating technology management and enterprise analytics.
Operations managers solve the puzzle of how work gets done: uncovering the tightest bottlenecks, fine-tuning processes to save the most time, alleviating their teams’ most persistent frustrations, etc. They balance costs with revenue to achieve higher operating profits, while managing quality assurance programs and sustainability efforts.
Leading business operations effectively is crucial to the competitive advantage of any institution. This Specialisation is not only created for students who are keen to venture into the functional areas of operations, logistics and supply chain management, but also for anyone intending to play a pivotal role in contributing to the efficiency of any organization, regardless of industry sector. World’s richest company Apple’s CEO Tim Cook was its Chief Operating Officer.
Right from the design stage, we have in mind this OSCM Specialisation, facebook.com/groups/OSCSpec, for leaders-in-training who will not settle for “good enough” in anything they embark on, but will bring on the whole measure of their technical skills and influential personas to engineer for better outcomes. Our BBA is a particularly fitting place to start.
Business students thus bring their prized comprehensive management understanding to bear on all optimizing issues in demand and supply planning for production and service operations on a worldwide scale. Electives relating to project administration, technology management and business analytics further provide students with essential knowledge and skills to get ready for running global supply chains. The best students may also pursue the edx.org/microMasters/MITx-Supply-Chain-Management Credential or the edx.org/microMasters/Principles-Manufacturing Credential together, and perhaps study in our tliap.nus.edu.sg/MSCM post-graduation.
The Human Resource Management journal’s HR Science Forum cited support for the notion that CEOs with Operations background attained higher performance. Please join us to become guardians of efficiency and champions of competitive strategy, hence resource & procedure management authorities who are welcome in all fields of international trade & commerce!
