Why supply chain management?

"With global operations becoming more complex, companies in manufacturing, retail and technology—and their consulting firms—are scrambling to hire people with supply chain expertise. But these experts are hard to come by." The Wall Street Journal

Bloomsburg University's SCM program, within the Department of Innovation, Technology, and Supply Chain Management, is designed using competency models from leading professional organizations. Recognizing the interdisciplinary nature of SCM, the program draws expertise from all business disciplines — accounting, finance, information technology management, management, and marketing — and integrates content through collaborative course design and delivery.

Supply Chain Management Major

As an SCM major, you will join a cohort of students as you move through the program to help you develop collaborative networks and strong group cohesion. The cohort (30 students) takes effect in the first semester of junior year with the first required SCM courses.

  • Every course is enriched with integrated technology, enabling students and faculty to participate in virtual business environments. Technology includes enterprise software (e.g. Microsoft Dynamics AX), Llamasoft Supply Chain Guru, Microsoft Visio, Microsoft Office, PQ Systems CHARTrunner, and Palisades DecisionTools.
  • Given the interdisciplinary nature of our courses, students are able to “trace” decisions, transitions and transactions through the organization leading to fuller comprehension of key business processes.

Experiential Learning

A plethora of rich opportunities are built into the program for students to:

  • attend guest lectures,
  • visit manufacturing and distribution facilities,
  • prepare for and pass professional certifications,
  • and network with career professionals.
  • We are proud of the Nicholas J. Giuffre Center, our active APICS student chapter, and the firms on our Talent Partner Registry. See why Bloomsburg is The Source for Supply Chain Management.
