Supply chain management is a rapidly evolving field. Goods transported through south central Pennsylvania are predicted to increase by just under 80 percent through 2030. As a result, there are a substantial number of project and supply chain management job opportunities in production, distribution, procurement, network management, customer service, and transportation.
The project and supply chain management program prepares our graduates for these opportunities by focusing on purchasing, materials management, project planning, resource management, operations planning and control, warehousing and terminal management, business analytics, and transportation systems.
All project and supply chain management courses are taught by faculty who are active researchers, scholars, or practitioners.
Our dynamic, innovative curriculum, developed with input from top executives from local industry, provides opportunity for outside-classroom learning via field trips to local manufacturing and distribution facilities, simulation games, regular interaction with industry experts, industry projects, and internships. Our fledgling student-led supply chain management club offers many opportunities for our students to hone their leadership and organization skills.
Our students who meet the academic criteria have the option to enroll in an integrated, continuous program of study leading to both the bachelor of science in project and supply chain management and the master of business administration (IUG program).
