Supply Chain Management

The Bachelor of Science degree in Management prepares students for careers as professional managers in corporations, governmental organizations, and small businesses. In addition, the program provides a foundation for graduates who wish to pursue advanced degrees in business and public administration, law, and the social sciences. The curriculum gives students a broad exposure to the functional areas of business and allows each to select an emphasis area in a subject that is germane to individual career interests. The Management curriculum provides an examination of the social, legal, political, and economic environments in which organizations must operate; an understanding of the functional areas of business and their interrelationships; and a knowledge of behavioral science, applied statistics, and mathematics as they relate to organizational problem-solving. The program is accredited by AACSB International.

The Department of Management offers a Bachelor of Science degree that allows students to choose from one of eight different emphasis areas.

The Supply Chain Management emphasis area is perfect for students who are innovative, creative, meticulous, and thorough in their work. This requires a balance between analytical and creative thinking skills that leads most graduates to a position in consulting, manufacturing, or even a logistics company. Supply Chain Management is something that is present in every company and valued and prioritized in every successful company. Sustainable competitive advantage is gained through long-term planning and forecasting, which is enabled by a lean process design and continuous improvements in company procedures and relationships. Where operations management tends to stay within a single branch or office, supply chain management extends past the four walls of a company and works with a number of upstream and downstream companies to successfully deliver a product to a consumer. This can include processes such as sourcing, purchasing, plant and transportation logistics, and demand management. Managing this supply chain effectively is vital to be a viable competitor in an increasingly global and competitive environment. What excites me most about being a member of the Supply Chain program is the growing interest among corporations to hire well-trained and talented supply chain professionals, which gives me many opportunities for internships and full-time employment upon graduation.
