Supply chain managers are in charge of the organizational systems that move goods and/or supplies from raw materials to the production floor to the final distribution point, all according to a fixed schedule. By overseeing the flow of materials and activities – purchasing, transportation, inventory tracking, warehousing, and more – they ensure that the right items are at the right point in the supply chain at all times.
Blackhawk’s Supply Chain Management program is a two year associate degree composed of 61 college credit hours. This program prepares students to enter the field with minimum on-the-job training so they can quickly advance to a position of increased responsibility with emphasis on project management and process improvement skills. In addition to the degree, students will be provided with the opportunity to become certified as a Six Sigma Green Belt and also as a Certified Logistics Technician through the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council.
