Program description

Minor in Supply Chain Management

The minor in supply chain management (SCM) prepares graduates to pursue careers in the running of a firm’s operations to deliver products and services to customers.

The minor focuses on supply chain management skills that develop timely and effective business operations and enable firms to capitalize on new technologies. In particular, the minor promotes the integration of information technologies that create strong entrepreneurial opportunities for firms.

Supply chain management entails an understanding of how manpower, equipment, and other resources need to be organized for a firm to be successful. The minor highlights the importance of multinational supply chains and logistics that are critical to the success of the UAE given its location as a worldwide trade hub. The role of quality and service delivery in operations is incorporated into the minor since they are vital to the success of firms competing in a global marketplace.
