Abstract:

Global Supply Chain Management/Transportation Efficiency Systems graduate degree program covers areas in global supply chain management and transportation efficiency. Global Supply chain management integrates global information, material and cash flow processes across all functions including sourcing, operations, return or recycling and logistics and planning – for both all partners. Supply chain system professional are the agents of change for e-business, manufacturing, high-tech, service and consulting companies. Transportation system analysis and planning stress the conceptual and quantitative approaches to the analysis of transportation and related systems. Our objective is to prepare students to identify, analyze, solve complex transportation, supply chain problems, and communicate those solutions towards their successful implementation.

The program could be very flexible which students with engineering/science/business backgrounds could take. There will be a core and a set of electives leading to two distinct specialties in two focused areas. Students must meet certain requirements such as having engineering/science background to take specialized courses in transportation. We could also identify some of the courses for undergraduate who want to get a concentration or double major.

This proposal is being submitted to leverage the collaborative work on developing a Masters program with the University of Detroit Mercy – MIOH UTC and to further develop an International Collaborative Masters Program in Global Supply Chain Management with help from ICHCA International Ltd.
