Minor in Operations and Supply Chain Management

About the Minor

The minor in operations and supply chain management is designed to prepare students for eventual participation as managers or specialists in the operations activity of industrial and service systems. Today, companies worldwide are competing in very different ways and very different environments than they were in the past because of technological advances.
