What do business operations managers do?
Leading corporations know that what happens behind the scenes of a business is just as crucial as what happens on the international stage. Business operations managers help control the foundation of a business — the everyday operations. They work with various departments within a company to coordinate strategies and goals. While business operations managers tackle policy creation, financial planning, and staffing, their responsibilities are too diverse to categorize into one department.
What is the career outlook for business operations managers?
There are approximately 2,145,140 business operations managers in the U.S. today, and that number is growing, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (2016). Business operations managers have projected employment growth of 7%, or about 151,100 new jobs from 2014 to 2024 (BLS). With a steady growth rate and a low unemployment rate of 3.7% (U.S. News & World Report, 2016), business operations managers can expect security.
What can you earn as a business operations manager?
Did you know that business operations managers are ranked among the top 20 “Best Paying Jobs” by U.S. News & World Report (2016)? With a median salary of $97,270 and the top 10% earning more than $187,199 annually, business operations managers are one of the highest-paying occupations in the U.S., according to the BLS.
Combine that with the median starting salary for MBA graduates, which reached $100,000 in 2015 — a $45,000 jump from bachelor’s-level business professionals (Graduate Management Admission Council, 2015) — and you have the makings of a great return on your academic investment.
