2022-2023 Undergraduate & Graduate Catalog
Bachelor of Business Administration in Supply Chain Management
A supply chain covers all the activities that go into creating a product or service. Managing a supply chain means making sure those activities generate maximum value for customers at minimum cost to the company, its partners, and the environment. That means supply chain management professionals touch every aspect of a business: from new product development to building relationships with suppliers, designing and improving production processes, and making goods and services available to customers. They need to have strong quantitative reasoning skills and be able to work effectively with people from across a business. Supply chain talent is in high demand and companies are willing to pay a premium for new hires. The Seidman supply chain program equips students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in this dynamic field and supercharge their company's value creating engine.
All B.B.A. programs are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
