Why a Degree in MSLCM?

Now more than ever, success in most businesses depends on the successful management of Supply Chain Operations. Consider what happens when supply chains fail to deliver and stockouts occur in retail stores. Research shows that retailers can lose nearly half of intended purchases when customers encounter stockouts.

Organizations such as Wal-Mart, Sony, Dell, SUN Microsystems, and DaimlerChrysler depend on their supply chain systems to deliver the right products at the right time. These companies succeed with:

  • Crafting customized supply chain architectures: Designing supply chains for delivery cost savings, speed, and managing business transitions
  • Leveraging innovation: Leaders in supply chain management apply new technology and new process thinking to great advantage
  • Managing the supply base: Flexible sourcing, supplier integration, and part management
  • Aligning supply chain partners: Building efficiencies through trust, common values, and goals
  • Implementing optimal measurement and controls: Creating the right metrics for operations based on appropriate incentives and penalties

A comprehensive program of study is required for students to succeed in these areas. Professionals in logistics and supply chain management will find this program to be focused, balanced, and practical. Our orientation of balancing theory development with field expertise will allow participants to develop a unique skill set that is unmatched.
