Supply Chain Management

Associate of Applied Science Degree

The BTC Supply Chain Management degree is a four-semester, 65 credit, 100% flexible program  where students will receive a fundamental introduction to the major functions of supply chain business processes along with development of management and technology skills.  The program prepares students to manage and coordinate functions that support product & service development, manufacture and delivery.  This typically includes purchasing materials/services, managing inventories of materials/finished products and coordinating the warehousing and delivery of these items. Supply chain students will go beyond these typical logistics functions and seek to learn how to support the financial well-being of the company as they develop skills in planning and analysis.  After completion, they will enter jobs, be productive with a minimum of on-the-job training, and advance to a position of increased responsibility with well developed abilities in communication, negotiation, project management and process improvement skills. 

Supply chain management includes a broad range of occupational titles. Those listed below are commonly found in industry, but specific titles will vary according to each individual employer. With additional education and/or work experience, Supply Chain Management program graduates may have additional opportunities in managerial roles such as plant manager, operations manager, production manager, warehouse manager, purchasing manager, inventory manager, distribution manager, transportation manager, logistics manager, and supply chain manager, among others.

Upon successful completion of this program, students will be able to:

  • Implement Supply Management practices in a global environment
  • Demonstrate operations management techniques across product and service industries
  • Analyze logistic interfaces and activities in a supply chain
  • Evaluate demand management techniques and customer service policies
