Online course: An Introduction to Operations Management starting soon

U Penn's Wharton School of Business has one of the best Operations Management classes in the world, and for the last few years it has been available as a MOOC. They've announced a new session starting on September 29 2014.

I've been watching some of the video lectures and Christian Terwiesch is an excellent lecturer.

What is learned in the class applies to system administration, running a restaurant, or a hospital. I think that system administrators, DevOps engineers, and managers can learn a lot from this class.

Sign up for An Introduction to Operations Management or just watch the videos. Either way, you'll learn a lot!

Highly recommended.

Thanks for the tip!

Thanks for the heads up Tom! Did you read the book for the course? I'm wondering if it is worth the $125+ price tag.

I did not get the book but I'm considering it. He has a cost-reduced version that just includes the chapters mentioned in the class (he brings this up in the first lecture)
