Major in Logistics and SCM

We offer an undergraduate major in Logistics and Supply Chain Management.

Logistics concerns the management of inventory, in motion and at rest. Thus, it includes transportation, warehousing, inventory management, and customer service; it is a critical component of SCM.

According to the Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council (CSCSC), “the supply chain is one of the most essential sectors of the Canadian economy, involving about 767,000 employees from a range of occupations and industries. The success of this sector in meeting its human resources and labour-market challenges has the potential to positively influence the future of Canada, and the quality of life that we all enjoy.” For more details, see http://www.supplychaincanada.org/
