About the Supply Chain Management Bachelor’s Program
The degree in supply chain management focuses on managing the flow of goods, services, finances, and information from point of origin to point of consumption in global supply chains. Supply chain management requires the analytical ability to make data-driven decisions and the interpersonal skills to manage essential business relationships. Supply chain managers must be able to communicate, collaborate, and coordinate with customers and suppliers. The degree prepares students for challenging careers in supply chain management in areas such as transportation, inventory management, strategic sourcing, distribution, customer service, and demand management. Admission into the supply chain management program is competitive and based on a comprehensive review of a student’s application materials.
Communication Literacy Requirement. Students attending Texas Tech University for the first time in the Fall 2017 term or later will complete a Communication Literacy requirement in their program(s) of study.
Texas Tech University’s transition from the Writing Intensive requirement to the Communication Literacy requirement signals the university’s awareness that in addition to the fundamental role that writing plays in enabling students to explore, develop, focus, and organize a message, other types of communication must also be taught as appropriate for a student’s discipline. Throughout each program of study, then, students must be given ample opportunity to develop their skills in forms of communication central to that program.
Communication Literacy courses for the Supply Chain Management major include: MCOM 2310, PCOM 3373, ISQS 3344, MKT 3356, and MKT 4385.
