indybiz,

For operations, the best are usually considered to be MIT, CMU, Purdue, Michigan, HBS, and Stanford, among a number of other excellent programs. For HR/OB, some outstanding programs are HBS, Stanford, UCLA, Maryland, and Wisconsin.

Regarding information on operations management careers, I don't actually know of a good book on the subject, but the Association for Operations Management (http://www.apics.org) would be a good place to start. For HR careers, look at Vault Guide to Human Resources Careers and the WetFeet Insider's Guide, Careers in Human Resources.

Good luck,
