Supply Chain Management Concentration
Supply chain management is a core competence at world-class firms. The principal benefit of supply chain management is the generation of a sustainable competitive advantage. A firm’s supply chain extends from the end customer back through the firm’s distributors, the firm itself, its suppliers and their suppliers. Supply chain management focuses on the design, development, and management of relationships, both inside the firm and with the firm’s supply world. These relationships are essential to ensure a smooth flow of quality goods, services and technology which optimizes end customer satisfaction. The program integrates three key legs: procurement, logistics and information systems. Students also will be able to participate in the activities of the Supply Chain Management Institute.
