Global supply chain management (GSCM) focuses on developing a seamless flow of raw materials, products and services, information, and financial capital in industry.

Supply chains start at the initial design process, including raw material sourcing and logistics, and continue through delivery of that product or service to the end customer. The goal of creating customer satisfaction at optimal cost is the focus of this program.

The GSCM curriculum at Clarkson involves a collaborative systems approach, including concepts and faculty from operations management, marketing, information systems, human resource management, strategic management and economics. This gives you the well-rounded education that employers seek.
