Global supply chains are networks of facilities around the world that procure raw materials, transform them into intermediate and final products, and subsequently market and deliver the products to customers worldwide through distribution systems.

Advances in information technology are accelerating productivity by providing a multitude of new, lower-cost options for integrating supply chains.

To survive in today's competitive global marketplace, it is critical that businesses integrate their supply chains effectively to meet rising customer expectations and declining product life cycles at a reasonable cost.

This concentration, developed with industry input, takes a comprehensive and systems view to integrating business functions by utilizing a multidisciplinary faculty from Operations Management, Marketing, Information Systems, Human Resources and Finance.
