Developed by Rider’s AACSB-accredited College of Business Administration in partnership with top international companies, our pioneering, top-ranked GSCM program equips students with the skills and experiences needed for a career in the exciting field of global supply chain management.
What is Global Supply Chain Management
Through every phase of a product’s lifestyle, global supply chain management professionals ensure that customers get the products and services they need and want — faster, better and more cost-effectively — from across town or around the world. They play a critical role to the successful functioning of businesses, healthcare, nonprofit agencies and governments.
A "supply chain" refers to the collection of steps that a company takes to transform raw material components into a final product that is delivered to customers. Typically, supply chain management has five stages: plan, make, source, deliver and return.
Every stage of that process involves professional skills that are critical to success, from marketing and logistics to data management and warehousing.
Our GSCM graduates find a wealth of different career tracks that offer both financial rewards and personal satisfaction.
