Supply chain and operations management can be a big part of the engine that runs the business world. Professionals who are skilled in these areas are generally responsible for managing the buying, selling and manufacturing of goods for businesses both large and small.
Students studying this discipline can learn about business practices and finance with a focus on data analysis, global supply chain management, manufacturing control and planning, business strategy, distribution fulfillment and strategic sourcing. Expert knowledge of these skills is ultimately required for businesses to keep supplies coming in and finished products going out.
The majority of supply chain and operations management degree holders go on to work in business and factories where inventories of warehouse levels, understanding vendor operations and supervising employees come together.
