Supply and Value Chain Management

In an era of same day delivery and globally sourced components, making sure products get delivered to the right place at the right time for the right price is easier said than done. Graduates with the skills to tackle these challenges are in high demand.

Supply chain professionals play a critical role in bringing value to their companies. They must communicate effectively within their organizations and across a global network of suppliers and customers while applying analytic skills. You'll learn innovative techniques to develop sustainable solutions that holistically address business problems. Supply chain talent is in short supply, allowing graduates early career opportunities to make a difference in major corporations.

Besides an undergraduate degree in supply and value chain management, we offer a concentration for students pursuing an MBA, as well as both a Masters of Science and a graduate certificate in supply chain management.
