This is an essential skill-set for many firms because their success depends upon their ability to work with suppliers, distributors, customers, intermediaries and service providers worldwide. Developing a firm’s supply chain network, including the relationships and technology necessary to have the network operate and adapt efficiently, can be the difference between success and failure.

- Logistics in the Supply Chain
- Operations Management
- Quantitative Methods
- Supplier Relationship Management
