UMT Supply Chain Management Concentration under the MBA

The UMT Supply Chain Management (SCM) concentration was built from the ground up in response to strong demand coming from individual students, business enterprises, and government. Over the past few years, UMT counselors were repeatedly asked: "What do you offer in the area of supply chain management?" The counselors answered: "We have a number of courses that address SCM topics that you will find helpful," but today they can respond: "We offer a fully-integrated concentration in this area through our MBA program."

It makes a lot of sense to study SCM from a business management perspective, as offered by an MBA. The UMT MBA degree is divided into two parts. In one, students study 27 credit hours of the full range of business courses that prepare men and women to function effectively as business leaders. Included here are standard courses such as accounting, leadership, communication skills, marketing and finance. The second part of the program has students take 18 credit-hours of SCM-specific courses in order to develop expertise in the SCM area.

By the time students complete the program, they have excellent general business management skills that can be applied to any business, as well as specialty skills in the hot, high-demand area of SCM. With advanced SCM knowledge, they become a valued asset in their organizations that has a grasp of what it takes to manage an enterprise’s supply chain, from sourcing needed goods and services from vendors "upstream" to distributing the business' products to buyers "downstream." An SCM overview course places SCM into its broadest business context, offering students a big picture view. A course on contracting provides them with the insights they need to set up partnering, licensing and other contractual arrangements with vendors, partners and buyers. An e-commerce course highlights the key role of technology in the Internet age in coordinating all aspects of the supply chain. Other concentration courses cover: risk and quality management, strategic sourcing, and transportation management.
