program overview

This two-year program is designed for domestic and international students with a bachelor's degree (in any discipline) and an interest in pursuing a career in global supply chain management. 

You'll learn industry relevant job skills and preparatory knowledge to attain industry certifications (APICS – CPIM, Lean Six Sigma). These certifications are internationally recognized and should introduce you to additional employment opportunities.  

Since most supply chains are global in nature, the International Business Management focus will position you to find international employment, or more successfully interact with international suppliers and colleagues while working locally. The theoretical and applied skills derived from this program will enable you to properly diagnose problems, quantify opportunities, and implement and manage solutions.
