Global Supply Chain Management

Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (B.S.B.A.)


Degree Overview

In today’s society and business world, global supply chain management is critical to the success of almost all organizations. Across service industries, manufacturing sectors and warehousing and fulfillment, the design and execution of an effective supply chain network is paramount to business performance. Supply chain management embraces end-to-end processes such as the successful procurement and sourcing of goods and services as well as operations management across the services offered and/or the design and production of goods. It also encompasses logistics planning and oversight for movement of materials up, down and across the supply chain network.

In addition to the managerial, planning and scheduling aspects of supply chain optimization, effective leaders must also be adept at project management, understanding new and disruptive technologies (i.e. blockchain, autonomous vehicles & robotics), as well as using data analytics to convert information into decision making capabilities. Supply chain professionals must also exhibit strong interpersonal skills, effectively working in cross functional teams, and demonstrate exceptional communication skills.
