Supply Chain Management | Undergraduate
The Supply Chain Management (SCM) major is one of the two academic programs offered in the Department of Information Systems and Supply Chain Management.
The SCM major focuses on preparing students with the necessary skills for successful SCM leadership roles in global corporations and government entities. The Supply Chain focuses on how to organize and optimize all of the information and process flows necessary to bring goods to market. Our students focus on understanding the supply chain at both grand and micro levels, which equips them to identify issues in processes, make informed decisions about how to source materials and select vendors, and be well versed in logistical planning and negotiations.
SCM majors are typically very organized and analytical thinkers. The ability to analyze and focus on the intricate details is essential in contributing to the Supply Chain area. The SCM major is in high demand, especially given the focus on getting both products and services to customers around the world quickly and with exceptional quality. Students with this major can leverage their skill set to work in any industry and contribute very easily in a variety of settings.
The Center for Excellence in Supply Chain at Howard University focuses on continuing to keep the Supply Chain program cutting-edge and engages with several Advisory Board companies to assist with programming, curriculum, scholarship opportunities, internships, and full-time opportunities, and mentoring.
