Supply Chain Management
Supply chain management professionals ensure that the desired product is
available to the customer in the right condition and quantity and at the right
time, place, and cost. To perform this function efficiently, firms need to
coordinate logistics, transportation, warehouse location and operation,
inventory management, packaging and other functions in a cost effective manner.
In this age of globalization, supply chain management professionals actively
operate at the hub of an organization, interacting regularly with all other
departments in the firm, including sales and marketing, finance, and operations,
and with suppliers and customers located around the world. The focus of Supply
Chain Management is on the application of models to increase the efficiency of
organizations. Students in this major use state-of-the-art software applications
to develop ways of increasing the efficiency of the flow of goods and services
across organizations, from suppliers, to manufactures, to retailers, to end
consumers. Supply Chain Management majors often double major with complimentary
majors like Operations Management, Marketing, Information Systems, International
Business and Finance.
