Research has shown that there will be a significant and continuing shortfall as we move towards 2020, in almost all of the 10 key occupations in the field of supply chain and logistics.* Haskayne undergraduate students have the unique opportunity to graduate with a concentration in supply chain management, which is built on the school’s core courses in the areas of accounting, finance, marketing, human resources management, operations management and strategy.
Students choosing the supply chain management concentration are required to take three core courses: materials and supply chain management, procurement management for supply chains, and field investigation in operations management. Students also have the opportunity to be exposed to diverse topics, including services operations management, negotiation, regulatory economics, transportation planning, services marketing and project management.
All fourth-year undergraduate students in the supply chain management concentration are automatically eligible for awards provided by sponsors. More details are provided in the Student Scholarships and Support page.
