Increasingly, companies are outsourcing different supply chain management tasks to external partners to benefit from their expertise and to focus more on their own core competencies.
This trend has reduced corporate investments in inventory and infrastructure and resulted in more flexible supply chains, but it is making supply chains increasingly interdependent and complex especially in today’s global business environment. Students with strong quantitative and computing skills and an array of multi-cultural and entrepreneurship experiences will become valued supply chain management professionals.
After graduation of 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.
