Careers in Supply Chain

What is Supply Chain Management?

Supply Chain Management (SCM) is a lucrative profession in high demand across all industries. SCM professionals engage in each aspect of a product or service: interacting with raw material suppliers, planning production, and the design and distribution of physical goods. They ensure products are environmentally and socially responsible.  SCM is a critically important job that requires science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).  

Today’s demand for SCM is very high, and it is predicted to intensify. Many SCM university students receive multiple job offers prior to graduation, have multiple internships (as early as freshman year), and earn high average starting salaries (~$60,000).
