Bachelor of Arts in Supply Chain Management

The Supply Chain Management (SCM) major provides students with a foundation in supply chain management theory, logistics,  distribution, and theoretical/analytical frameworks to assist in managing and understanding critical supply chain components. It also examines forecasting, demand management, assembly, sourcing, procurement, sales and marketing, operations planning, as well as  broad areas such as strategic and production management, e-commerce, digital business systems, digital and business ethics, finance,  and international business. Students will be introduced to effective methods for streamlining the production and the delivery of  products and services along the supply chain within organizations, both domestic and internationally. They will also learn supply  management through simulated applications, case analyses, real world assignments and projects and will gain hands-on-experience  integrating supply chain management models to enhance business performance outcomes. The goal in the SCM major is to provide  advanced insights and strategic knowledge by integrating the concept of value-driven supply chain management and analytical  methods to applied and real operational challenges facing our world today.
