We live in a fast-paced environment where the efficient flow of goods, services, and information is critical to business success and consumer satisfaction. Supply chain managers help improve customer service by ensuring products are delivered to the right place, at the right time, in the proper condition and at the lowest possible cost. The demand for qualified professionals in this rapidly evolving industry is growing as businesses and organizations recognize the cost savings and improved efficiency that can result from effective supply chain management.

The supply chain management program at UW-Superior is one of the five concentration options for the business administration major. It joins and complements the successful transportation and logistics management (T&L) major—one of the most distinctive and highly-regarded programs of its kind in the United States. The T&L major is focused on operations while the SCM major is more analytical in scope.

Our curriculum has been developed by experienced faculty and in consultation with an advisory council composed of local business leaders who share their expertise and connections to identify and secure opportunities for students

Program Options

  • A four-year plan earning a B.S. or B.A. degree in business administration with a supply chain concentration
  • A four-year plan leading to a double major in transportation and logistics management and business administration with a concentration in supply chain management

What You’ll Learn

In this program, you’ll take core business classes to gain a broad understanding of business principles, and you’ll study the complex world of supply chains through classes that emphasize data management, quantitative analysis, and problem-solving. You will learn the business of coordinating the seamless flow of raw materials, information, and products through global supply chains.

As a double major in Supply Chain Management and T&L at UWS, I’ve had an incredible journey filled with diverse learning opportunities and real-world applications. The program has broadened my understanding of global supply chains and equipped me with the skills to thrive in the industry. The faculty’s dedication and the hands-on projects have truly made my experience unforgettable.
