B.S. Degree in Supply Chain Management

Do you often see ways to improve a system once you’ve learned it? Is it easy for you to spot challenges and suggest ways to overcome them? Do you sometimes question why things “have always been done this way?” These days, it is crucial for companies to operate at maximum efficiency if they want to remain competitive and profitable. That’s where your talent comes in.

Supply chain management is the branch of management that oversees the flow of products and information from the lowest level supplier through to the end customer. Stout’s SCM program gives you the knowledge, skills and applied research experience you need to help your future employers maximize efficiency and profitability.

You’ll graduate with the skills you need to apply best practices and state-of-the-art technologies to improve business performance. Due to the global nature of Supply Chain Management, you’ll also gain a valuable understanding of global diversity, inter-cultural communication and world geography. In addition, you’ll participate in industry-sponsored projects and complete an internship or co-op experience as part of the program requirements.
