How is Management with Supply Chain and Operations Management at Michigan Tech Different?

The Supply Chain and Operations Management concentration within the Management major teaches students how to tackle complex business problems in a challenging environment, and how to effectively manage the physical and information flow across the supply network. This concentration is a comprehensive introduction to operations management, procurement, logistics, project management, and Six Sigma fundamentals. Supply Chain and Operations Management students become prepared to work for major international corporations.

What You Need to Know

Nowadays, supply chains compete against one another rather than individual companies. A single firm cannot survive on its own without supply chain partners. In a global business world, each company is integrated into a large supply network and depends on the efficient use of innovative solutions from external partners.
