Program Overview

The products and services used every day are dependent on supply chains. These supply chains work behind the scenes connecting suppliers, customers, and other partners to meet the needs of the global marketplace and help drive economies worldwide.  Supply Chain Management involves the integration of numerous processes to create an operational framework, within which multiple organizations work collaboratively to meet marketplace demand.  Logistics -the movement, storage, and flow of goods, services, and information - is an integral part of this framework.
