Degree: Associate in Applied Science
Plan 22BO

This degree will provide students with the knowledge and skills for employment within the supply chain area. Supply Chain Management focuses on the flow of materials end-to-end beginning with procurement and ending with delivery to the customer. The coursework is designed for careers focused on procurement, inventory management, warehousing, distribution, logistics and transportation. This degree will provide a better understanding of how each of the areas affects the other and how to best achieve efficiency and profitability for the organization. Courses for this degree are offered online, blended or in the classroom. Graduates of the degree program will hone their skills for front-line supervisory/team lead positions in warehouses, distribution centers, and operation centers. The AAS degree can be accomplished in a two year time frame. Grainger has generously supported the development of this program.

To complete an A.A.S., students are strongly encouraged to meet with an Academic Success Advisor to identify coursework that will meet degree requirements.
