Supply chain management converts global supply chains into value chains by efficiently and effectively dealing with the dynamic goals, uncertainties, and complexities in their network. It is said the real competition is not between organizations but their supply chains. We study the for-profit, non-profit, and public supply chains; including healthcare, humanitarian, and governmental supply chains.

In addition, the SCM department in the W. P. Carey School of Business studies all aspects of supply systems: supply management, operations, logistics, demand management, network relationships and sustainability, just to name a few. We also address the role of cutting edge technologies and analytics on supply chains.

Our faculty is involved in world-class research, ever-expanding and diversifying the SCM knowledge-base. Our staff is dedicated to serving all who come. We are inclusive in having productive relationships with a range of stakeholders – from large global corporations to small local firms. Come study with us. Join us in our quest to observe, describe, explain, predict, control and design supply systems of the future.
