Global Supply Chain Management Major

Every successful organization owes some of its success to effective supply chain management and logistics.

These processes focus on the flow of goods and information from the source of raw materials through the distribution channels to the final consumer, and beyond, to recycling and disposal.

In today's competitive environment, managing transportation, inventory, product plans and schedules, and information flows are critical to satisfying customers and creating competitive advantages.

Organizations compete globally by working with international suppliers, outsourcing, and marketing to consumers worldwide. This global reality places even more importance on successful supply chain management.

The global supply chain management major focuses on global business and prepares students for success. And with the flexibility of multiple campuses and online courses, you can personally tailor your educational experience.

Courses provide insight into many subjects, including:

  • Managing raw materials and finished products
  • Developing transportation and logistics strategies
  • Merging transportation policies with production and marketing plans
  • Global supply chain analysis and planning
