The dynamic field of supply chain management has become increasingly important as more companies use supply chain strategies as a means of market differentiation—through four or five graduate level business courses, you will gain the skills necessary to thrive in this evolving industry.
Understanding the most reliable, cost-effective ways to source materials, assemble products, manage inventory, and deliver products to customers has always been essential to business success. As all businesses have become increasingly global and advances in information technology continue to reshape manufacturing, transportation, inventory control, and customer relationship management, supply chain management has become an even more fascinating and rewarding field.
