The Supply Chain and Operations Management program of the University of Minnesota focuses on process excellence from both intra-organization and inter-organization points of view.



Supply chain and operations (SCO) professionals manage the flow of goods, services, and information both within and across organizations. In every organization and in every industry, SCO professionals make sure that products get made, services are provided, and customers are satisfied. SCO professionals:

  • …tackle sustainability challenges, including efficient use of resources and responsible sourcing.
  • …take a broad view of business by collaborating across functions and organizations.
  • …are practical problem solvers and figure out better ways to get work done.
  • …are curious about how things work and like to be hands-on.
  • …have diverse career options, ranging from positions using strong people-facing communication skills to positions that require detailed analytics.
