The growth of e-commerce, increased global competition, and advances in information technology are some of the forces behind the ongoing need to eliminate waste and add value throughout a product’s supply chain. The Operations and Supply Chain Management (OSCM) concentration examines how a firm can establish and enhance the operational core competencies required by demanding consumers in a dynamic marketplace.
This concentration prepares students for the challenges of tomorrow’s business environment by providing them with the technical, informational, and managerial skills needed to manage and improve an integrated system of productive processes. Career opportunities exist with organizations that provide or are dependent on fast, low-cost, accurate, and uniform flows of products, information, and services. Examples of career opportunities include consulting, logistics, manufacturing, health services, government, retail and insurance, and banking.
