Choosing Supply Chain Management

Supply chain management (SCM) is an exciting and all-encompassing business field that includes planning, managing, and coordinating all of the activities from sourcing raw materials needed for production to delivering the final product to the end customer. The competitive landscape requires supply chains to compete against other supply chains. This change has resulted in strong current and future job opportunities in supply chain management.  

Since March 2020, the Supply Chain field has been featured prominently in the news. In fact, two of our faculty members have been appeared on the news recently. Dr. Jason Woldt appeared on Fox 11 News on February 26, 2020, to discuss the impact of Coronavirus on small businesses in Northeast Wisconsin:

 Dr. Ryan Skiver appeared on Fox 11 News on September 21, 2021, to discuss possible shortages for the holiday shopping season based on supply chain disruptions:
