Supply the Demand

A Major in Supply Chain Management (SCM) is the newest addition to CBU’s BBA program.  SCM provides a unique opportunity to learn about the fascinating challenges companies face in today’s global networked economy. Demand is high for SCM professionals, both in Canada and abroad. Employers want people who have the ability to see the business as a system, not just the bottom line.

What Is The Study of Supply Chain Management?

Supply Chain Management is the management of materials, information and finances as they move from the manufacturer to the supplier, retailer, and ultimately to the end user. SCM professionals are responsible for making sure the right product is available to the customer in the right quantity and condition, at the right time, place and cost.

This program provides insight into global sourcing and how it plays an essential part in the supply chain. Students gain understanding of planning and information technology tools to effectively coordinate the stakeholder activities in the supply chain. By majoring in SCM, students graduate prepared to enter the workforce with a broader understanding of SCM and business logistics.

Why Study Supply Chain Management At CBU?

Be a part of the process and make a difference in the end result.

  • Study real life supply and demand through a 12 week Co-op Placement. Students work with a mentor while earning a wage. This hands-on experience gives students a competitive edge when applying for future jobs.
  • Develop an understanding of potential risks in global sourcing, including hidden costs of working alongside different geopolitical zones, cultural differences, time zones, currency exchange, and exposure to financial and political risks in some emerging economies.
  • The supply chain is one of the most essential sectors of the economy in Canada, involving 767,000 workers from a range of occupations and industries with over 35,000 job openings in the marketplace.
  • Learn to identify potential markets, tap into skills or resources not readily or economically available on a local level, and develop alternative collaborators to achieve goals.
  • SCM graduates can pursue additional courses offered by the Supply Chain Management Institute, and write the respective exams for certification with the Canadian Supply Chain Management Association as a Supply Chain Management Professional (SCMP), or with the Canadian Institute of Traffic and Transportation(CITT) as a Certified Logistics Professional.
  • SCM students will be well-equipped to enter into graduate program. Talk to an Enrolment Services Professional about how to pair your SCM degree with postgraduate studies for the career you want.
