Supply Chain Management
Companies depend on the supply chain for product delivery to their customers. The supply chain includes the production and movement of materials and products from suppliers to manufacturers to distributors to retailers and finally to the end customers. Managing this process is critical to the success of any company along the supply chain. At the McLane College of Business, supply chain majors learn the skills needed to be supply chain professionals.
