The Bachelor of Business Administration degree with a major in Marketing and a concentration in Supply Chain Management prepares students for leadership positions in transportation, logistics, and supply chain management functions for business and industry. The U.S. has one of the most developed logistics infrastructures in the world, giving consumers and businesses access to an enormous variety of goods and services. Transportation professionals use this infrastructure to serve customers quickly and efficiently, taking charge of decisions affecting the transporting, warehousing, and order processing of raw materials, purchased parts and finished goods that are needed in our society.
All organizations need transportation and logistics professionals. A rock concert needs sound systems and lighting; a power plant project needs generators and concrete; a television station needs cameras and sound equipment. All of these items need to be delivered where they are needed and when they are needed. Organizations would be unable to function without transportation and logistics professionals. Opportunities in this growing field are growing rapidly and offer excellent compensation and advancement opportunities.
The supply chain management concentration enables students to earn a marketing major while selecting elective courses that provide academic preparation in the distribution, supply chain and logistics issues needed to be successful in this field. This is a unique program, and Mississippi State is the only university in the region that offers it. For more information, please contact Dr. Frank Adams.
