Supply Chain Operations Management
Why study Supply Chain Operations Management?
Supply chains make or break businesses. Companies beat the competition because they find, track and keep their products moving efficiently. They employ top supply chain managers. How do we know? Our alumni work at General Electric, Toyota, Domtar and other Fortune 500 companies.
As a Supply Chain Operations Management major, you will study the entire supply chain and its components. You'll learn how to:
- Organize resources: labour, material, money and time
- Model supply chains using forecasting and production planning
- Effectively manage scheduling, inventory, logistics and technology
- Make smart decisions, assess risks, manage projects and do trade-off analyses
You learn by seeing current and leading-edge supply chain practices in action. You examine case studies, play simulation games, go on field trips and listen to guest speakers from industry and business.
The knowledge you gain through the Supply Chain Operations Management program will position you to become a valuable asset in the business world.
