Supply Chain Management

Contact: Dr. Mike Landry

Offered as a Bachelor of Business Administration or as a Bachelor of Technology, Supply Chain Management prepares you for a dynamic position in a rapidly changing global economy.

With responsibilities ranging from buying raw materials to distributing finished products, supply chain managers need to control costs and increase quality while making sure what they do is profitable. And they need to be able to work with all kinds of different departments in an organization as well as with different organizations on the outside.

Many organizations are just now learning how critical good supply chain management is and they're scrambling to find trained professionals to oversee what is increasingly becoming an important part of business.

And that's where we come in.

The skill set Northeastern State University provides to prepare you for a successful career in supply chain management includes:

  • Cost/price analysis
  • National and international aspects of purchasing
  • Performance measures
  • Supplier evaluation
  • Electronic commerce
  • Strategic and team planning,
  • Inventory control
  • Transportation management
  • Distribution 

If you choose the Bachelor of Business Administration major in Supply Chain Management, you'll get not only training in supply chain management, but a well-rounded business education that includes finance, marketing, accounting, economics, and more. Take the Bachelor of Technology track and you'll learn about supply chain management from an industry perspective.
