Operations and Supply Chain Management
The growth of e-commerce, heightened 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 in the Pacific Northwest include consulting, logistics, manufacturing, health services, government, retail and insurance, and banking.
