Virtually all corporations are dependent upon their supply chains to manage the flow of goods, services and information to help customers. You will study the entire supply chain enterprise, yet have the flexibility to select courses for your chosen career path (purchasing, distribution and product management, sales management, or logistics and materials handling).
Courses will provide a systems approach where you can understand how each area of the supply chain interacts with and relies on the rest. They will help prepare you for a career that requires skills in business analysis, communication and teamwork, technological know-how, data processing, and leadership.
It is common for students to combine the Industrial Engineering Technology and Supply Chain Management majors to get a double major that is highly valued by employers. Ask an advisor for more information.
