Supply Chain Management Technology : Online


Why study Supply Chain Management Technology : Online?

Supply Chain Management Technology (SCMT) is a diverse and growing professional business field. Supply chains are made up of all the companies that participate in the design, assembly, and delivery of a particular product.

  • Vendors supply raw materials.
  • Producers convert those raw materials into products.
  • Warehouses store that product until it's needed.
  • Distribution centers pick up and deliver that product.
  • Retailers, online and in-store, bring that product to consumers.

Supply chains are the reason that the producer can provide customers what they want, when and where they want it, at the price they need.

In the context of today's global economy, there is an ever-increasing demand for greater innovation, increasing efficiency, and cost reduction, all in an effort to generate recurring value for the firm and its customers .

This degree program is designed to provide a fundamental introduction to the field of supply chain management in conjunction with basic business management technology success skills and a well-rounded general college education.
