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.
