Operations and Supply Chain Management, B.S,

Requirements

The BS in Operations and Supply Chain Management is aimed at producing career-ready graduates in operations and supply chain management to meet the growing demand for employees with this skill set. Students become career-ready through a program of study consisting not only of a theoretical base in making good business operating decisions but also a hands-on, practical approach to learning. Practical knowledge is gained by not only offering but requiring each graduate to sit for at least one professional industry certification exam (Domo, Lean, Six Sigma, Project Management), and complete either an internship or an independent study applying skills and tools learned throughout their coursework. Further, students will benefit from the program’s connection with industry leaders who advise program directors regarding course offerings and course content that is most valuable on the job market. Students will also be provided multiple opportunities to interact and network with industry partners on in-class projects, internships, and full-time employment post-graduation. Students will gain knowledge in core topics such as analytics for business decisions, business decision optimization, supply chain management, simulation for business applications, and quality management tools and techniques (Lean, Six Sigma, Theory of Constraints, etc.). Graduates will be prepared to enter the job market in a variety of industries such as technology, healthcare, supply chain, manufacturing, distribution, and logistics.
