This undergraduate option prepares graduates for operations, logistics, procurement and supply chain management in the service and manufacturing industries. In the past two decades, the loss of manufacturing jobs in the U.S. triggered attrition of innovation capabilities across many sectors of the economy contributing to the current anemic economic recovery. The U.S. needs a professionally-trained workforce that is able to manage internal operations and global supply chains in the manufacturing and service sectors and in government agencies. Well-trained operations and supply chain managers are also needed in global companies that operate outside the U.S., including companies that operate in the Asia-Pacific Rim.
