POM as a Career In an attempt to understand student attitudesbetter towards POM production and operationsmanagement classes and POM careers, a preandpostclass survey was administered tostudents enrolled in a required MBAlevel POMclass. Findings indicate that students do not fullyunderstand POM issues or how the POMfunctional area relates strategically to otherorganisational areas.Students had almost no interest in POM careers,and before participating in the strategicallyfocusedclass, students had little desire to include a POMclass in their core MBA course requirements.Results of this study may explain general attitudestowards POM as well as the declining numberof students choosing POM as a major.Suggestions for changing these attitudes arediscussed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Industrial Management & Data Systems Emerald Publishing
