Management, B.S. - Supply Chain Concentration

The business discipline of supply chain management (SCM) represents the integration of logistics, distribution, and purchasing. Within the U.S., supply chain professionals manage over one trillion dollars of logistics costs involved with freight transportation, warehousing, and inventory holding costs. In today’s global economy, the efficient and timely coordination of worldwide supply chains is critical to business success. Jobs are available with shippers (i.e. logistics planner, warehouse manager), transportation companies (i.e. trucking and railroad operations), and intermediaries such as customs brokers and logistics management firms.
