Undergraduate Major: Supply & Logistics Management
If you want to be where all the action takes place, supply and logistics is the business concentration for you! You can be a part of a global enterprise that brings the supplier’s supplier to the customer’s customer, creating a supply chain that begins with sourcing raw materials and ends with producing and delivering the final product or service to the consumer.
Due to its wide scope, supply chain management addresses complex interdependencies, creating an extended enterprise that reaches far beyond the factory door. From business forecasting to marketing management, students in this program will gain a comprehensive understanding of this enterprise, and be prepared to seek innovative and ethical solutions to solve any business problem.
