Supply Chain and Operations Management

Producers of products and services in the global economy rely more heavily on outsourcing than ever before. The more they outsource, the more difficult it is to manage relationships with that ever-growing number of suppliers. The Supply Chain and Operations Management major prepares students for careers in aspects of supply chain management that include purchasing, logistics, process improvement, quality management, inventory management, and scheduling.

Graduates in Supply Chain and Operations Management enter careers in supply chain management positions with manufacturers and retailers, with consultants, and with third-party providers of supply chain services (3PLs). As preparation for these careers, we offer courses in global sourcing, logistics, planning and scheduling, quality improvement, business-to-business marketing, and supply chain strategy. Senior SCOM majors are required to take a course that includes a consulting project with an external client.
