Supply Chain Management Technology

Bachelor of Science

We live in the age of globalization and our society is dependent upon their supply chains to manage the flow of goods, services and information. You will study the entire supply chain enterprise, yet have the flexibility to select courses for your chosen career path (purchasing, distribution and product management, sales management, or logistics and materials handling).

Courses focus on a systems approach where you can understand how each area of the supply chain interacts with and relies on the rest. This program will help prepare you for a career that demands expertise in business analysis, communication and teamwork, technological know-how, data processing, and leadership.

Supply chain management professionals work in virtually every industry—manufacturing or service, governmental, educational or retail. Different job titles or functions may be working as a buyer, negotiating contracts, inventory manager, an import/export goods manager, transportation manager, supplier relations, supplier selection, operations, warehousing, benchmarking, e-commerce, recycling, technology, and customer relations.
