Special emphasis is placed on enhancing supply chain efficiencies through problem-solving methodologies including Six Sigma and Lean management. Students will also apply the principles of Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) to make effective end-to-end supply chain decisions.
