Learn the processes involved in the complete product cycle, from supplier to customer, and plan and manage the optimal flow of goods and services. Our Supply Chain and Operations Management program provides what successful future leaders in the field need: a broad understanding of many business functions, from finance to accounting to human resources and leadership, paired with the ability to harness the power of data to make strategic decisions.


A Transformative Education

Undergraduates studying supply chain and operations management learn from the same faculty who teach in our school’s top ranked master’s program in Global Supply Chain Management. In addition to partnering with corporations to explore forecasting, inventory management, logistics, and financial analysis as it is practiced in the real world, you can develop professionally by joining the Operations and Supply Chain Organization.

Your next giant leap awaits.

“The curriculum allows for applicable learning through case studies from professors who have been in industry before. My experiences in the classroom have allowed me to understand the material in far more depth than what the textbook teaches because we are able to apply concepts to authentic situations. Consistent with a Purdue STEM degree, the business school curriculum provides an analytical approach to problem solving, but also prepares students to effectively communicate their solution and how they reached that conclusion.”
