Supply Chain Management (SCM) is the study of the movement of materials, information and finances as they flow from supplier to manufacturer to wholesaler to retailer to consumer. Supply chain management involves coordinating and integrating these flows both within and among companies.

At Missouri Western, SCM students acquire the managerial and technical skills needed to succeed in this fast-paced field. The curriculum covers the functional areas of the process as well as purchasing, demand planning, logistics, inventory and quality management. We also work closely with regional firms, so our students get hands-on experience in the field before graduation.
