Global Logistics and Supply Chain Technology
From sourcing materials to distribution and transportation, a supply chain is the critical connection between clients and businesses. Members of the supply chain manage the entire life cycle of a product, which includes how a product is acquired, distributed, allocated, and delivered.
In an ever-expanding global marketplace, supply chain management is one of the fastest-growing professions. In 2016, more than 3,000 supply chain jobs were posted in South Florida. Entry-and mid-level supply chain personnel who can operate at the highest level of effectiveness are needed around the world.
