ARLINGTON, VA, USA, March 4, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — There is no argument why Amazon.com is a smashing success. What is its secret sauce? Supply chain management (SCM). All businesses deal with supply chains. A company’s supply chain runs the gamut from “upstream” sources of the supplies of goods and services a company needs in order to function to “downstream” distribution of its own goods and services to customers. With a strong supply chain, companies deliver faster, cheaper, and better goods and services to customers.
The University of Management and Technology has recently launched an MBA in Supply Chain Management. As an MBA degree, it offers students key knowledge and skills in good business practice, from marketing to finance to leadership, as well as SCM concentration. The SCM courses cover the full range of skills needed to manage a business’s supply chain, including SCM principles, strategic sourcing, contracting, and risk management. The degree is offered online. It is super-flexible: students study at their own pace and can register at any time. And it is affordable – the state of Virginia just ranked UMT’s tuition as the #1 most affordable out-of-state tuition school in the entire state (http://www.collegecalc.org/lists/virginia/most-affordable-out-of-state-tuition/).
Does it make sense to pursue a career in SCM? Absolutely! According to the US Department of Labor, the median pay level for supply chain managers was $74,590 in May 2017, and the job outlook will grow 7% annually in the next decade (source: https://www.bls.gov/ooh/business-and-financial/logisticians.htm). Remember: All organizations must manage their supply chain. The demand is there for people with the right knowledge and skills. One last word: Amazon’s CEO, Jeff Bezos, is the richest man in the world. He built his fortune by reinventing SCM.
