OM, as a field which has tremendous influence on revenue and cost should take important part in economic development of countries. Transitional countries (countries in transition from state to market economy) in particular have to take big steps if they want to achieve the economic level of developed countries. One of a critical issue for success of OM besides wider understanding of OM usefulness is quality and number of OM academic programs and courses. Therefore gathering objective information of OM studies and understanding of OM in countries is of vital interest. A critical issue for this is quality and number of OM academic programs and courses and exact explanation of OM scope of business implementation. It seems according to various researches that many universities are not aware of the importance of OM. The objective of this research is to contribute to fill this gap throw exploratory study of OM education in one developing and transitional country Serbia. It is necessary, during the promotions of OM study programme, to make a clear distinction with similar programs to OM and to make a precise division of the areas of OM and the professions that come out of these areas.
