Overview

Supply chain management is a rapidly growing and evolving area of employment being shaped by technology and international competition. If resources – people, money, machinery, facilities, material and information – are to be used wisely, supply chain management personnel must be familiar with computer technology, quantitative methods, and planning and problem-solving techniques useful in analyzing business systems.

In addition to computer and analytic skills, supply chain management personnel need excellent communication skills to work with people at all levels of the organization. Professionals with a degree obtained in the Supply Chain and Operations Management program of University of Wisconsin - Whitewater can work in almost every industry imaginable. Career opportunities include operations and supply chain analysis, global supply chain management, production planning, quality control, material management and purchasing.

Job Outlook

National employment growth for positions classified as logisticians is expected to be 7 percent from 2016 to 2026, and projected growth in Wisconsin is 14 percent for the same period. However, these numbers only tell part of the story related to supply chain career prospects, as a recent study commissioned by DHL Global indicates that changing skill requirements and an aging workforce will contribute to a global talent shortage.
