About Supply Chain, Operations Management & Business Statistics
With globalization resulting in increased competition, the demand for new knowledge and well-qualified graduates in the area of supply chain management has become increasingly critical -- not only for manufacturing companies, but also for service-oriented companies in Wisconsin and around the world. Over the last decade, business executives and educators have been increasingly reminded that designing, buying, sourcing, making, delivering and supporting innovative products and services requires access to both a talent base, and cutting-edge research and teaching. The Lubar School's SCOM curriculum seeks to produce graduates with an integrated view of the purchasing, manufacturing and logistics processes, an understanding of the role of technology, and the integrative skills to think globally and act locally across all areas of business in the public and private sectors. We strive to make our graduates among the most sought after professionals in the region.
