B.B.A Major in Operations & Supply Chain Management
The Operations & Supply Chain Management program provides students with the knowledge and skills to assist in the design, implementation, and control of efficient supply chains. The success of many firms 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 for many manufacturing and service firms. This major provides students with the quantitative and conceptual tools to immediately help firms manage their operations and supply chains.
Students may be admitted to the College of Business & Public Administration and may elect a major within a business discipline after completing at least 60 semester hours at UND or other accredited institutions.
They must also have earned a minimum grade point average of 2.50 (2.0 is C) in all courses attempted and a “C” or better in the six courses comprising a sophomore-level pre-business core.
Students planning to transfer to UND from a junior college should enroll in only those junior college business courses that are offered as freshman or sophomore level courses at UND.
