New Program: Supply Chain Management
Supply chain management (SCM) is the handling of the entire production flow of a good
or service, starting from
the raw components to delivering the final product to the consumer. It is particularly critical in today’s increasingly
globalized environment across many industries. Career options in SCM include positions in several functional
areas: manufacturing, operations, purchasing, warehousing, transportation, and logistics. This program is for the
student currently in or hoping to enter a career in supply chain management. A strong demand in the region for
supply chain professionals provides numerous job opportunities in this field. This program also prepares students
to obtain professional certifications specific to the field of SCM. Students may take courses in any sequence
and are encouraged to choose a variety of electives that best increase their skill set for employment based on
their area of focus. (See Additional Resources below for supply management chain videos on program overview and new courses offered).
