The program seeks to develop critical thinking skills and opportunities to apply these skills in operations strategy, demand and supply planning, service operations, six sigma and continuous improvement, strategic sourcing and negotiations, inventory management, global supply networks, and supply chain analytics. Students are also encouraged to pursue internships as part of their studies.
