Supply Chain Management

Careers and Internships

Supply Chain Management is one of the hottest fields today, offering SCM majors a variety of exciting career opportunities. According to a Hamilton Project lifetime earnings survey, the field of operations and logistics has one of the highest entry level and lifetime earnings of all business and engineering disciplines. Further, it is estimated that over 50 percent of current supply chain professionals are expected to retire within the next decade.

As an added resource, the College of Business has a supply chain management advisory group. This committee is comprised of top supply chain professionals from the New England region. Students can interact with these professionals and receive multiple internship opportunities, job opportunities and referrals, scholarships, and funded trips to national conferences.
