Degree Spotlight: Supply Chain and Logistics Management
A degree path for movers and shakers.
Looking for the most efficient, most cost-effective route to your bachelor’s degree? Well, you’ve landed on the Bellevue University website, so you’ve probably got that part figured out. But what degree path to choose? If you enjoy looking for value added operations, then the Bachelor of Science in Supply Chain and Logistics Management might be for you.
This is a management degree that offers employment in the transportation, distribution, logistics, and warehousing sectors.
“Now we’re talking about supply chain, which brings in the customer-client relationship and how that relates to your logistics management,” said Dr. Ed Haynes, Director for the Supply Chain and Logistics Management program. “It’s the whole entire process, so it’s more encompassing. It gives the student a better grasp of exactly what logistics is and the value of the entire acquisition process.”
The first four core courses of the major are foundational and emphasize business and management competency applicable for supply chain and logistics professionals. The final four courses of the major concentrate on supply chain and logistics management and include Introduction to Supply Chain Management and Logistics (SCLM 410), Global Logistics and Transportation (SCLM 420), Business Logistics System Analysis (SCLM 430) and Supply Chain Management: Financial, Economics, Capital, Cash and Legal Considerations (SCLM 440).
That final class, SCLM 440, will serve as a capstone for the degree.
“It’s drawing information from each course,” Haynes said. “Now you’re putting it all together and you’re looking at the financial aspects, the economics, the cash flow, and the legal considerations of what your business is trying to do.”
Students will be exposed to cutting-edge information and technology in the program including Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID).
“It’s a new technology that is being used for inventory control,” Haynes explained. “It is using passive antennas to store data. At a certain frequency it will release that information. It stores all the information about what a product is, or what’s on a whole pallet or what’s in the back of semi-truck. At an instant you can get all that information.”
Students targeting careers at or advancement within companies such as ConAgra, Union Pacific, and United Parcel Service as well as similar companies/industries would be well served by the Supply Chain and Logistics program, Haynes said. Military students, whether exiting or remaining on duty, would be an excellent fit for the program as well.
For students who wish to continue on to earn their master’s degree, the SCLM program prepares students well to pursue their MBA. The MBA program offers an area of concentration in Supply Chain Management.
