Supply Chain Management

Through this STEM-designated M.B.A. program, you'll become an expert in both the analytic and the technical methods you need to optimize supply chain systems. 
You'll learn about the process of transferring raw materials into finished goods, and the links between manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, retailers, and vendors—all crucial parts of the business process in supply chain management.

As a result of this well-rounded education, our students have won scholarships and national honors from supply chain organizations including the Containerization & Intermodal Institute and the Council for Supply Chain Management Professionals. We also have an active student chapter of the Association for Supply Chain Management (APICS), the premier professional association for supply chain management and operations.

By 2028 it is estimated that there will be more than a million jobs in the STEM field. In preparation, this STEM designated supply chain management program will equip you to utilize technology, data and business analytics to make effective business decisions and solve complex business problems.

The STEM designation offers an additional benefit by allowing international students to apply to extend their 12-month optional practical training (OPT) by an additional 24 months.
