Bachelor of Science degree in Project and Supply Chain Management
It’s estimated that more than half of all activities undertaken in modern corporations are project based. From developing new products to constructing new facilities, the list of projects that must be planned, executed, and overseen is nearly endless.
At the same time, the continuing globalization of business functions creates a growing need for people who can effectively manage supply chains. Whether they are acquiring raw materials or distributing finished products, supply chain managers are critical to organizational success.
The Bachelor of Science in Project and Supply Chain Management (PSCM) degree program concentrates on developing knowledge, skills, and abilities in two important disciplines in modern corporations. Project management skills include developing new projects and coordinating procurement and project delivery systems. Supply chain management emphasizes the integration of manufacturing and service operations, logistics, purchasing, and distribution to enable organizations to develop value-creating supply chain networks.
Students can add certification in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) with SAP to your degree. SAP is the leading global supplier of software solutions for managing business intelligence, operations planning, and purchasing. Earning a certificate in ERP with SAP makes you a more attractive candidate to the 300,000 employers who use SAP software solutions.
The major provides students with an opportunity to develop the quantitative and people skills necessary to design and operate today's complex management systems. Students learn how to manage critical components in organizational supply chains and apply business analytic methods for organizing and fully integrating supply chain practices throughout the organization.
