We are about building tomorrow’s supply chain leaders. Graduates of the Supply Chain Management (SCM) program will find themselves in exciting and diverse roles in organizations where they will manage activities, such as planning and forecasting, purchasing, sales, transportation, storage, and distribution, which are required for the efficient flow of goods and services between the points of their creation and their ultimate consumption or disposition.
Beyond faculty expertise in these areas, our students benefit from the College’s Supply Chain Management Research Center, which connects students to industry executives leading to job opportunities, internships or other support. Recognizing the quality of the SCM program faculty and graduates, the U.S. News & World Report has rated the SCM program among the best programs in the United States.
