Supply Chain Management STEM Programs

The Bachelor and Master of Science in Supply Chain Management (SCM) are STEM degree programs. The Supply Chain Management deals with the issues related to developing, producing and delivering goods and services from suppliers to customers. SCM is mainly concerned with the efficient integration of suppliers, factories, warehouses and stores so that products are distributed to customers in the right quantity, at the right time and at low cost.

Students enrolled in SCM programs gain knowledge, skills and expertise needed to manage and improve the efficiency and productivity of business operations to improve the quality of services and goods produced. The SCM programs are designed to prepare students to be leaders in their supply chain management careers.

Our faculty has significant domain expertise and strengths in supply chain, logistics, purchasing, sourcing and operations management while maintain a wide range of activities in research and real-world experiences.
