It builds on other areas of functional expertise that are part of the business degree, including marketing, finance, accounting, and strategic planning. The major provides a framework for linking these functional areas with specific areas of skill development that are focused in SCM, i.e., total quality management, productivity enhancement, and time-based competition.
