Business Management/Supply Chain Management SCM.S.AAS

Associate of Applied Science - 62 - 63 Credit Hours

Division: Business and Public Services
Department: Management
Effective as of Fall 2016

Supply chain and logistics positions are some of the most important jobs in an entire business. Think about it – if a manufacturer doesn’t have a steady supply of materials coming into their factories at the right price, business grinds to a halt. Effective supply chain managers (SCM) help companies produce and deliver products faster, cheaper, and better. Supply chain management requires precision, fast responses, good organizational skills, and the ability to deal with many tasks at the same time.

When you think of supply-chain work, what comes to mind? Maybe, a guy driving a forklift in a dusty old factory? That outdated image is a huge hurdle for an industry that badly needs new talent in procurement, forecasting and analytics, logistics and transportation, and supplier relationship management. In fact, it is expected that SCM jobs will increase at rate of 22% for the next several years. Would you like to be part of this growth? If so, an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Business Management/SCM at Sinclair may be the right decision for your future. This program is fully accredited by the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), a specialized accreditation recognized by the Council on Higher Education Accreditation.

By focusing on SCM, you are better prepared in a wide variety of positions such as Fleet Manager, Warehouse Manager, Inventory Analyst, Procurement Manager, Production Supervisor, and Customer Service Manager in health care, government, manufacturing and distribution organizations.

What is "Business Management/Supply Chain Management "?

The Business Management Supply Chain Management (SCM) concentration provides a broad-based study of organizational strategic plans, resources, roles, responsibilities and functions, while also focusing on management of supply chain activities. This study involves consideration and application of processes to develop coordinated supplier-to-customer systems, including: identifying needs for raw materials, supplies and components; developing specifications; computing quantity requirements; selecting sources and negotiating agreements; acquiring, transporting and storing inventory; managing and maintaining operations; and logistics management.
