The interdisciplinary minor in Supply Chain Management (SCM) is offered in coordination between Saunders College of Business and Kate Gleason College of Engineering providing students with the knowledge to assist in developing and implementing efficient supplier systems in order to maximize customer value.
Supply chain management focuses on the coordination of the associated processes required both within a business, as well as across businesses/suppliers, to deliver products and services - from raw materials to customer delivery. The objective of this minor is to provide students with a background in areas commonly needed to support SCM roles, including business strategy, information systems, lean/quality management, customer service, purchasing, negotiations, contracts, forecasting, inventory management, logistics, and project management. Completion of this minor provides students with Lean Six-Sigma Yellow Belt body of knowledge.
Although the SCM minor is built for matriculated undergraduate students in business and industrial engineering, students from other majors can be considered if they complete the program prerequisites.
