Management, Marketing, and Information Systems / Rankin College of Business
Supply Chain Management is offered by the Rankin College of Business at SAU and is fully accredited by AACSB, International, the premier accrediting body for colleges and schools of business. Fewer than five percent of all business programs worldwide are accredited by AACSB, which indicates the quality of our program. The general business emphasis curriculum includes graduate level courses in accounting, economics, finance, marketing, organizational theory, quantitative analysis, strategic management, and management information systems.
Supply chain management is defined as “the process of the integration and coordination of the business processes throughout the supply for the purpose of satisfying the ultimate customers of the supply chain.” Supply chain management strategies began to emerge in the early 1980s. Walmart and Dell offer examples of successful early adopters of supply chain management strategies. Most business organizations have adopted some form of supply chain management strategy since that time. It is the goal of the S.C.M. program emphasis to provide graduates with the skills and knowledge necessary to support organizational efforts to successfully implement supply chain management strategies.
