As supply chain management becomes more seminal in competitive strategy, it is important for business leaders to have a strong appreciation for and understanding of the mechanics of supply chain and logistics management and the resulting impact on organizational performance. Given the global nature of supply chains, talent is needed to ensure the proper planning, implementation, and assessment of market-centered, adaptive, and agile supply chains worldwide.
Supply chain and logistics management employment opportunities are wide and varied. The following represents a small sampling of the specific types of jobs available to program graduates: procurement specialists; sourcing analysts; materials manager; sourcing commodity specialists; logistics customer service; transportation sourcing specialists; material coordinator; operations manager; inventory control; production scheduling; warehouse manager; logistics analysts; and quality manager.
Upon completion of the BSBA degree program in SCLM, students will be prepared to enter a wide-range of sectors, including manufacturing, distribution, services, and government.
