What is Supply Chain Management?

Supply Chain Management is a diverse and growing professional business field. Supply chains are made up of all the companies that participate in the design, assembly, and delivery of a particular product.

  • Vendors supply raw materials.
  • Producers convert those raw materials into products.
  • Warehouses store that product until it’s needed.
  • Distribution centers pick up and deliver that product.
  • Retailers, online and in-store, bring that product to consumers.

Supply chains are the reason that a producer can provide customers what they want, when and where they want it, at the price they need.

In the context of today’s global economy, there is an ever-increasing demand for greater innovation, increasing efficiency, and cost reduction, all in an effort to generate recurring value for the firm and its customers.

Student Testimonials
“As a non-traditional student and someone who has not been active as a student for over 25 plus years, my experience has been inspiring. At first, I was unsure if this journey into achieving a Supply Chain degree was for me or even something I can achieve. After I finally accustomed myself to a study schedule and made a habit to make sure I do my work assignments in a timely manner some of my fears went away. Once I started receiving positive feedback from other students in my discussion post, I realized that I could achieve my goals. Everyone has been positive, my professors and the other students alike. ”

“When I decided to go back to school to get another degree, I was nervous because it had been a while since I was last in a classroom setting. The best part of this is that all of the classes are online and can be done anywhere and this works around my work schedule which means I am not rushing to get to a classroom. I think if these were all classes that needed to be done in person that I would probably not have signed up to do this especially with the current pandemic running rampant. I looked at the curriculum and was intimidated with some of the classes in the program but so far through my first semester I have not felt left behind or lost. If I would feel like I didn't understand something there was always an avenue for me to get help through one of the tutors for the various courses or the professors themselves. I will tell you that this is not an easy course curriculum to get through (5 straight semesters with no break over the summer), you need to be focused and set time aside to make sure you get the work completed on time and submitted. Some of the classes are more difficult than others depending on where your strength lies and with 3 of the 4 classes this semester being accelerated leaves little time for a break. You cover a tremendous amount of information in a month and a half and this is the part where you need to be focused and pace yourself. I am glad I did this but look forward to the short break at the end of this first semester. ”
