Supply Chain Management

Home 9 Academics 9 Bachelor Programs 9 Supply Chain Management

Supply Chain Management has become one of the most critical areas for companies who need to move products around the globe.  Networks continue to expand.  A total of 1.4 million new jobs in Supply Chain and Logistics were created from 2014-2018, and this growth is likely to continue as more and more companies recognize the crucial importance of their supply chain.

Because the importance of this role has grown so rapidly in recent years, the labor market is currently experiencing a shortage of Supply Chain professionals, and most of the people working in this area do not have a formal education in the field. Beyond the potential earnings found in this field, students who work in these jobs will be able to have a real impact as global supply chains continue to multiply and impact economies and environments throughout the world.

What makes this program special? 




This major concentrates its supply-chain specific courses down to three classes, ensuring that students are learning the most relevant, applicable skills.


Real-World Experience

The program capstone tasks students with solving supply chain issues of real corporations, which provides them with a portfolio of supply chain planning work.

Program Requirements

CCMN 341 - Globalization

This course examines a complex topic — globalization — from a Christian & Biblical perspective. Globalization is a concept that has proliferated in both popular and scholarly arenas, describing the increasing intensity of flows of capital, labor, commodities, and ideologies across national borders. We will explore multiple perspectives on the origins of globalization and the local, national, and international impacts of globalization on lands, cultures, economies, human rights and quality of life. Students will also examine the relationships among globalization, citizenship, and identity to enhance skills for citizenship in a globalizing world. The unifying theme of the kingdom of God will be used to integrate biblical ideas about God’s mission in the world.
