Read more about the new Global Supply Chain Minor

Would you be interested in building careers at multinational enterprises and be responsible for distributing their products all over the world? JMU's College of Business (CoB) and College of Integrated Sciences and Engineering (CISE) have collaborated to develop a minor in Global Supply Chain Management. This program is designed to provide CoB and CISE majors with a broad overview of the supply chain management and logistics functions in a global context. The goal is for students to learn both the hard technical skills like data driven problem solving and the soft skills like business communications and teamwork in an experiential learning environment. For example, students in this program will work on engaging class projects where they will learn how to become an Amazon seller by sourcing products from overseas; or how to deliver necessities to disaster areas after a hurricane; or how to increase production efficiency of a client through a consulting project. Moreover, the students will also have an opportunity to study abroad through this program in Panama and Colombia and work with students from our partner university, Universidad Tecnologica de Bolivar, in Cartagena to develop a logistics plan to source and produce branded consumer products in Colombia and then distribute them in the U.S. market. The minor is 18 credits in total: two required and four elective courses.
