Today’s global marketplace and competitive business environment demand that corporations expertly match supply for their products with customer demand. Online companies and brick and mortar retailers alike depend on supply chain professionals to maximize efficiency in each step of the production process. Results of successful supply chain management include increased profitability, seamless logistics and customer satisfaction.
Students who pursue a degree in supply chain management are strong problem solvers with a keen eye for detail. They identify vulnerabilities in operations and propose solutions to improve or to maintain efficiency. Through the supply chain management program, students learn to communicate solutions in terms that resonate with corporate executives, connecting the supply chain to a company’s overall viability.
Graduates seek careers in entry-level management analyst positions in consultancy, operations, logistics and distribution, manufacturing, purchasing, sourcing, warehousing and other industrial sectors. They also are prepared for graduate study.

Both centers are staffed with licensed counselors who provide students with strategies for mastering job interviews, writing professional cover letters and resumes and connecting with campus recruiters, among other services.
A 120-hour curriculum leads to a degree in supply chain management. All undergraduate degrees require a core of 42 hours. In the core courses, students learn theories and analytical techniques that can be applied to the functional areas of business, such as supply chain operations.
