Supply chain management (SCM) builds on the business core and prepares students for careers as analysts, decision-makers, and managers in all segments of the organization’s supply, production, and distribution chain. Students who complete this program will have a fundamental understanding of the systematic, integrated nature of the creation and delivery of goods and services, and the way the supply, production, and distribution chain includes or involves other internal and external entities. Students will be able to solve problems and make decisions in this environment by using concepts from accounting, economics, and other business administration areas, computing, and analytical skills, and appropriate quantitative and qualitative models.
The business administration major requires a single specialization of at least 24 credits. Occasionally a student requests a second specialization. To be eligible for a second specialization, a minimum of 20 unique credits must be completed. Unique in this sense means the credits have not been used as part of any other business administration specialization. Students cannot double specialize in general business and another business administration specialization.
Students can apply to the major as part of their application to CWU, via their MyCWU account, or by emailing CBAdvising@cwu.edu and will be approved for entry to the major once they have completed the College of Business Agreement [AD1] to Policies.
