Supply Chain Management

Supply Chain Management emphasizes the procurement, distribution and logistics function in the industrial sector of the economy. Special attention is given to problems in the management of industrial distribution business, both as suppliers to, and consumers of, manufacturers and other businesses.

Teaching

The Supply Chain Management curriculum taught by our faculty is designed to develop entry-level managers with the vision, versatility, and technical competence to meet requirements for business success in the 21st century. First, we seek to develop graduates who recognize the importance of the business-technology interface. Second, we endeavor to instill in these future managers a thorough understanding of the supplier-manufacturer-distributor infrastructure that supports all sales and service activity at the end-user level.

Special attention is given to problems in the industrial business environment as suppliers, manufacturers, and customers of manufacturers. Students graduating with this concentration are qualified for entry-level position in branch management, sales management, purchasing and materials management in manufacturing, distribution, and consulting organizations. Graduates are typically involved in a specialized activity (e.g., selling, sales analysis, expediting, vendor evaluation) within the distribution and manufacturing management function.
