Stand Out in Your Field

Supply chain includes a company’s planning, quality control, logistics and distribution, and inventory and procurement. Stellar supply chain management is vital to the health and success of nearly any organization, from corporate to nonprofit to government, to military logistics and defense to manufacturing, retail, and more.

One key to success in supply chain management is strength in supply chain and logistical systems and the ability to incorporate a depth of knowledge with ever-evolving technological savvy to communicate data-driven concepts and strategize for profitability, sustainability, planning and operations, and other aspects of business that produce growth while serving domestic and international populations seamlessly.

A COGS in Supply Chain and Logistical Systems will help you prepare for a highly satisfying career path ideal for critical-thinkers with analytical mindsets who thrive on flexing their communication skills while relationship-building in this service-oriented avenue of industry. Someone working in this field might:

  • make tactical decisions;
  • develop their own systems of analysis;
  • negotiate with suppliers, sales teams, transportation dispatchers, or even internationally;
  • and assess risks; 
  • all while innovating for maximum efficiency and quality assurance.

Early or mid-career goals to work toward in supply chain and logistical systems might include:

  • process, operations, quality control, or logistics analyst;
  • supply chain manager;
  • buyer or purchasing manager;
  • procurement agent or specialist; and many more.

Mid- and senior-level career goals in supply chain management may include:

  • director of distribution or global procurement;
  • VP of supply chain, transportation or supply management; and
  • chief supply chain officer.

Why Choose a COGS?

A COGS pathway makes it possible to immediately focus on a specialized area of interest strategically tailored for your next career move or the next step in your education. The admissions process for a COGS is more streamlined than for a full degree, allowing a simpler entry point to explore graduate studies.
