Olivet's Manhattan Business School Covers Management in Evolving World

January 20, 2020

The Olivet Business School in Manhattan, New York, welcomed its current students enrolled in the MBA programs for the new quarter.

Two featured courses, "Operations Management" and "Human Resource Management", are being offered this quarter. The rapid changes and shifting structures in learning environments have altered how management is approached in modern times. Though the courses will be exploring new collaborative software technologies and strategies used in the field, the focus is still based on human and social aspects of organization.

"Operation management is a difficult subject to approach by any business professor as it represents the quintessential fracture between the conventional concepts found in books and the necessary imagination to pursue business in this ever-evolving world," said Professor Sebastian Keita.

"I encourage my students to be open to the importance of using their imagination for operation management. It will permit them to bridge that gap between the books and the evolving world," Keita added.

Speaking on the subject of human resources management, Dean of Olivet Business School Jacob Chatterjee pointed out that the most important asset in any successful company or enterprise is its employees.

"Human resource management is a much-misunderstood subject. It is not just about good intentions and whistling in the dark or avoiding unionization. The objective of the class is to teach students to have a strategic approach in the corporate managerial setting. Such training will yield to a more motivated workforce, allowing for a more competitive advantage overall," Chatterjee said.

The Olivet School of Business New York Extension site offers selected courses for its MBA program while providing Entrepreneurial internships and Ministry internship opportunities at its 3 floor Manhattan building. For more information, visit https://obs.olivetuniversity.edu
