The Global Supply Chain Management major focuses on management of the flow of goods and information from the source of components and materials through the channels of distribution to the final customer, and beyond, to recycling and disposal. In today's highly competitive environment, the management of purchasing, operations, quality, transportation, inventory, scheduling, and information flows are ever more critical to an organization's ability to satisfy customers and create a competitive advantage.
