Supply Chain Management

A supply chain is the series of organizations that help to deliver a product or service to consumers. Those involved in supply chain management play a critical role in understanding demand and delivering products and services. A supply chain can involve getting milk from the dairy farmer to the processor to the grocery store in the form of products like cheese and ice cream or the distribution of emergency supplies to those in need after natural disasters.

CWU’s Supply Chain Management program provides students with the skills and knowledge necessary to enter positions in demand planning, inventory control, logistics, freight management, purchasing, and many other areas. Students have many opportunities, including working with professionals during internships and industry projects, pursuing certificates in lean/six sigma (yellow and green belt), and enterprise systems certificates of recognition through SAP. Graduates are sought for positions with manufacturing firms such as the Boeing Company and PACCAR, service providers such as Expeditors, Wilson Logistics and JB Hunt, distributors such as Fastenal, Chempoint and other global, regional and local firms.
