Bachelor of Science in Supply Chain Management
Today’s global marketplace and competitive business environment demand that corporations expertly match supply for their products with customer demand. Online companies and brick-and-mortar retailers alike depend on supply chain professionals to maximize efficiency in each step of the production process. Results of successful supply chain management include increased profitability, seamless logistics and customer satisfaction.
Students who pursue a degree in supply chain management are strong problem solvers with a keen eye for detail. They identify vulnerabilities in operations and propose solutions to improve or to maintain efficiency. Students in the supply chain management program learn to communicate solutions in terms that resonate with corporate executives, connecting the supply chain to a company’s overall viability.
Careers in Supply Chain Management
Graduates seek careers in entry-level management analyst positions in consultancy, operations, logistics and distribution, manufacturing, purchasing, sourcing, warehousing, and other industrial sectors. They also are prepared for graduate study.
All Jindal School undergraduate students must complete an internship and 100 hours of community service in order to graduate. The Jindal School’s fully staffed Career Management Center (CMC), working in tandem with the University’s Career Center, helps students prepare for and seek internships, as well as post-graduation employment. The school’s Undergraduate Programs office directs and coordinates the community service requirement.
