Supply Chain Management

The supply chain management major is designed to prepare students to become leaders in supply chain management, a total systems approach taken by companies, suppliers, and partners to deliver manufactured products and services to the end customer. Information technology is used to integrate all elements of the supply chain from sourcing parts to coordination of retailers; this integration gives the enterprise a competitive advantage that is not available in traditional logistics systems. Entry-level positions in supply chain management include buyer, materials manager, risk management analyst, logistics planner, and staff consultant. Students work closely with the faculty adviser in the Department of Information, Risk, and Operations Management.
