Bachelor of Business Administration, Major in Supply Chain Management


Earn a Bachelor of Business Administration – Supply Chain Management Major at Thompson Rivers University

A supply chain has three primary functions. Procurement is sourcing of the materials, supplies and services needed by an organization. Operations deals with using these inputs to manufacture goods and provide services. Transportation and logistics involves delivering products to consumers. The goal in all these areas is to maximize customer satisfaction and corporate profitability. These efforts have led to many business innovations such as single and global sourcing, design for manufacturing, agile and lean manufacturing, advanced analytics, 3-D printing, and green supply chains.

After graduation from the Supply Chain Management Major at Thompson Rivers University, most students will earn a Supply Chain Management Professional Designation (SCMP) while gaining valuable industry experience. Some may then decide to pursue a graduate degree in the field or a related area such as management science or project management. Designation holders, particularly those with a graduate degree, will be well prepared to advance to the highest levels of their profession including careers in consulting or teaching and research.

Before coming to TRU, I couldn’t even imagine how fast my life would change here. TRU gave
me all the opportunities I was looking for to unearth my true potential. I’ve met people from
various parts of the world, gained real-world work experience and most importantly, I have
learned more about myself. Being a part of the TRU community has been one of the most
meaningful and rewarding experiences in my life. One of the best things I did in my program
was my co-op. I put my learning into direct practice right away and that helped me secure a full
time position after I graduated.
