The supply chain and logistics management track of the Oregon State MBA program focuses on a skill set that includes acquiring a solid mastery of operations, sourcing, logistics and supply chain analytics concepts and methods. This MBA track prepares graduates for careers in the service and manufacturing industries, non-profit sector, and government and civilian services.
In the past two decades, the loss of manufacturing jobs in the United States triggered attrition of innovation capabilities across many sectors of the economy, contributing to the current anemic economic recovery. Disruption associated with the pandemic, climate change and geopolitical conflicts calls for a professionally trained workforce that is able to manage internal operations and global supply chains and build resilient businesses and government.
Well-trained operations and supply chain managers are also needed in global companies that operate outside the U.S., including companies that operate in the Asia-Pacific Rim.
