Project and Supply Chain Management

Project and Supply Chain Management

Project and Supply Chain ManagementIt has been estimated that well over half of all activities in modern corporations are project-based. From developing a new product to constructing a new building, the list of efforts that organizations must plan, manage, and deliver (ideally on time and under budget) is nearly endless. At the same time, globalization creates a growing need for professionals who can effectively manage complex supply chains. 

The Project and Supply Chain Management degree program helps you to develop your knowledge, skills, and abilities in project management. It emphasizes the integration of manufacturing and service operations, logistics, purchasing, and distribution—the functions that enable organizations to cultivate value-creating supply chain networks. 

You’ll learn how to manage projects for organizational success, develop an understanding of critical components in organizational supply chains, and apply business analytic methods for organizing and fully integrating supply chain practices.
