The Bachelor of Business Administration with a specialization in Supply Chain Management is designed to provide students with an understanding of the systems and decision-making required for a successful career in the supply chain management field.
Students will gain specialized knowledge in the components of the supply chain from purchasing through sales and distribution in the context of using information technology to achieve strategic and organizational objectives. Topics include how to improve speed to market; enabling online purchasing/supply chain functions, production, distribution and logistics systems; inventory management; enterprise system evaluation and supplier selection; financial considerations; outsourcing and partnership options; competitive bidding and negotiation; contracts; client service and satisfaction issues. The student will learn about the design of logistics networks and the management of transportation infrastructures.
The specialization culminates in a Capstone course, in which students will work in teams to develop an executable supply chain strategy and implementation plan for a company that is seeking to enter a new foreign market.
