 Procurement is sourcing of the materials, supplies and services needed by an organization. Operations deals with using these inputs to manufacture goods and provide services. Transportation and logistics involves delivering products to consumers. The goal in all these areas is to maximize customer satisfaction and corporate profitability. These efforts have led to many business innovations such as single and global sourcing, design for manufacturing, agile and lean manufacturing, advanced analytics, 3-D printing, and green supply chains.

Increasingly, companies are outsourcing different supply chain management tasks to external partners to benefit from their expertise and to focus more on their own core competencies. This trend has reduced corporate investments in inventory and infrastructure and resulted in more flexible supply chains, but it is making supply chains increasingly interdependent and complex especially in today’s global business environment. Students with strong quantitative and computing skills and an array of multi-cultural and entrepreneurship experiences will become valued supply chain management professionals.

After graduation of the Supply Chain Management Major at Thompson Rivers University , most students will earn a Supply Chain Management Professional Designation (SCMP) while gaining valuable industry experience. Some may then decide to pursue a graduate degree in the field or a related area such as management science or project management. Designation holders, particularly those with a graduate degree, will be well prepared to advance to the highest levels of their profession including careers in consulting or teaching and research.


Typical job titles: senior buyer, purchasing manager, corporate procurement manager, director of operations, plant manager, director of materials management, director of transportation and logistics, warehouse manager, vice-president supply chain, director of supply chain management.
