Supply chain management is a growing and rapidly evolving area of employment being shaped by international competition. If resources - people, money, machinery, facilities, material and information - are to be used wisely, supply chain management personnel must be familiar with computer technology, quantitative methods, and planning and problem-solving techniques useful in analyzing business systems. Supply chain management personnel must also have computer and analytic skills, keep abreast of current technology and know when to incorporate new technology into their organization. In addition, they need excellent communication skills to work with everyone from those on the assembly line to those in top management. A degree in supply chain management will provide career opportunities as materials managers, purchashers and buyers, production planner, supply chain analyst, quality control, operations research analysts, or global supply chain management.
