Program description

Supply Chain Management

The Supply Chain and Logistics Management (SCLM) major is designed to equip students with the skill sets necessary for successful careers in supply chain-related fields. As SCLM professionals have more seminal roles in competitive strategy, it is important for business leaders to have a strong appreciation for and understanding of the mechanics of SCLM and the resulting impact on organizational performance. The SCLM major is consistent with the current USA Strategic Plan, with respect to program development, industry partnerships, and research.

What Is Supply Chain Management (SCM)?

Supply Chain Management (SCM) embraces the full range of processes required to get good and services from vendors and to deliver finished products to customers worldwide. The concentration highlights the management of activities from sourcing/procurement, conversion into finished goods, and related logistics. The area encompasses the coordination and collaboration with all channel partners namely suppliers, intermediaries, third party service providers, and customers. The SCM Concentration prepares students for entry-level jobs in logistics, transportation, warehousing and distribution, purchasing/procurement, port management, supply management, demand management, and customer service.
