Why you should study Logistics and Supply Chain Management? 

 

 

1. Less competition

 

Supply chain management is an industry on the rise with positions all over the world that need to be filled. Every year, hundreds of thousands of supply chain jobs go unfilled due to a lack of qualified applicants.According to the University of North Texas’ logistics degree program, there are five local employment opportunities available for every one supply chain management graduate. 

 

2. Good Pay

 

Salaries in the USA for those in SCM range from starting pay at 45k to 60k upwards of 200k for directors and executives. The average salary for supply chain managers is $84,086 per year. And in today's logistics labor market, negotiating a salary is in favor of the applicant. 

 

3. The degree is applicable in more than one industry

 

Critical thinking is a skill valuable anywhere, not to mention the ability to be innovative, strategic and creative. Not only does Logistics and SCM touch on manufacturing, transportation and trucking, warehouse management, and shipping and delivery, it has an even broader purview of job prospects. Deloitte LLP, the largest international employer of accountants, recruits SCM graduates to consult manufacturing and logistics companies. Purchasing departments at everything from the Department of Defense to FEMA need professionals who understand logistics. The key is having a firm understanding of your skills and to know how to sell yourself in any industry, because there is a way with Logistics and SCM.

 

4. It is becoming more relevant, not less

 

Complex supply chains are the norm today, and more oversight is needed than ever before to find logistic solutions to get a product to its final destination efficiently and cost-effectively. Globalization and internet store-fronts have transformed some of the most basic parts of the supply chain. Stiff competition and a move toward sustainability have created a need for innovative management more than ever before. While a lot of traditional manufacturing and trade jobs are disappearing in America, supply chain managers are in high demand.

 

5. It is a college-to-career degree 

 

There are a number of great SCM programs all over the nation, either stand-alone or incorporated into MBA degrees, that are all focused on training students how to a do a specific job after graduation. While broader degrees in humanities or business or science have value, a degree in SCM has a clear career path beyond graduation, which allows college professors and advisors to teach students the most relevant and helpful information for their post-graduation life. Moreover, many of these programs have industry contacts and recruiters who work with them to aid students in networking and job searching.

 

To Sum It Up

 

Supply chain management is proving to be a promising degree for undergraduates. Many employers are scouting qualified undergraduates. If you are innovative and searching for a promising career path, give us a try.
