Global Supply Chain Management

Bachelor of Science in Business Administration - Global Supply Chain Management

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. Whether sourcing from non-domestic suppliers, outsourcing business functions, or attempting to market goods and services to consumers in other areas of the world, today's business leaders need a detailed understanding of all the challenges and opportunities arising from a supply chain that is fundamentally global

If the challenge of acquiring, transporting, and delivering a good from one part of the world to another — before the competition — appeals to your competitive nature, then you may already possess one of the vital skills needed to be a highly successful global supply chain management major in the American International University. As the economy becomes increasingly global, demand for supply chain professionals continues to grow.

They are experts at purchasing components and finished goods, deciding on manufacturing and warehouse locations, and determining inventory and transportation strategies for worldwide product flows. Students majoring in global supply chain management at the School of Business develop the highly valued skills that suppliers, manufacturers, and retail buyers of goods worldwide demand. Our global supply chain management major focuses on global business and prepares students for success.
