Supply Chain Management B.S.


TOTAL DEGREE HOURS: 120

The B.S. in Supply Chain Management equips students with the knowledge and skills needed to pursue careers in the supply chain industry. Supply chain management is a business function that ensures the efficient and effective management of the flow of goods, services and finances among firms around the world to transform raw materials into finished products along with management reverse flows (e.g., defective or damaged products, product returns, end-of-life disposal) in a sustainable manner. Graduates from this program enter the workforce in supply chain positions across multiple types of companies including manufacturing, distribution, transportation, and retailing. Students gain field-based experience through a required internship and a project in the capstone course.

State Mandated Common Course Prerequisites


Florida public state and community college students enrolled in an Associate of Arts (AA) program should normally complete the general education requirements and the State Mandated Common Prerequisites at a Florida College System institution. As a rule, AA students should avoid taking any business courses at the state and community college that are listed as 3000- and 4000-level courses at USF. Normally, courses in Finance, Marketing, Management, and Accounting, as well as other Business Administration courses, taken at the lower division level that are offered as upper division courses at USF, will not be accepted for upper division credit in the Muma College of Business.

In general, Business courses taken at the lower level, at technical schools, or as part of professional or military training, are not applicable to the degree programs in the Muma College of Business. Exceptions to this policy will be made only upon proper validation of such courses. Validation consists of successfully completing specified advanced courses in the discipline.
