Supply chain management involves the integration of business processes across organizations, from material sources and suppliers through manufacturing and processing to the final customer. The program provides students with the core knowledge related to a wide variety of supply chain activities, including demand planning, purchasing, inventory control, material handling, product and service support, information technology, and strategic supply chain management. In addition, the program offers two concentrations: logistics and operations. The logistics concentration focuses on transportation, distribution, warehousing, facility location analysis, and packaging. The operations concentration focuses on the analysis, design, implementation, planning, control, and improvement of manufacturing and service processes.

The study of supply chain management prepares students for professional careers with manufacturers, distributors, transportation carriers, logistics service providers, and consulting firms. The curriculum provides the required theoretical/conceptual base and analytical methods for making sound operational and strategic business decisions.
