The supply chain management major is designed to prepare students to become leaders in supply chain management using a total systems approach used by companies, suppliers, and partners to deliver manufactured products to the end customer. Information technology is used to coordinate all elements of the supply chain from sourcing parts to coordination of retailers in order to achieve a level of integration that results in a competitive advantage that is not available in traditional logistics systems.
Entry-level positions in supply chain management include buyer, materials manager, risk management analyst, logistics planner, and staff consultant. Supply chain managers tend to be individuals with good communication and negotiation skills who are systems oriented (analytical people who see the "big" picture).
