A degree in SCIM provides students with strong employment opportunities in the fields of information systems, supply chain, quality, and project management. Furthermore, many SCIM graduates have successfully completed internationally recognized professional certifications in Operations Management, Supply Chain Management, and Information Technology resulting in a distinct competitive advantage in securing professional positions.

This concentration integrates the study of two areas of business: Supply Chain Management (SCM) and Information Systems (IS). SCM examines the operational processes organizations use to transform inputs into outputs. IS captures, analyzes, and creates reports to support management decisions throughout the organization. IS is central to the SCM because it provides the technology platform for supply chain management system and helps transform data into information for decision making and strategic management. This unique blend of curricula will enable students to address both the operational and technological challenges of the future.
