BGSU MBA Program Adds Supply Chain Management Specialization

The supply chain management specialization has long been a strong undergraduate program at Bowling Green State University.  Now, students pursuing their Full-time Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree can pursue a specialization in supply chain management.   The new specialization was introduced in fall 2014.  According the Dr. Janet Hartley, professor and director of the Supply Chain Management Institute, “We wanted our MBA students to have the opportunity to pursue the many career opportunities that are available in the field of supply chain management.”

The full-time MBA program at Bowling Green State University is a twelve-month program.  Students who choose to specialize in supply chain management add just one semester of coursework.  The specialization focuses on courses in quality and lean tools, logistics management, operation planning and control, and strategic sourcing.  Internships are strongly encouraged and can be completed in the spring semester prior to graduation.

One of the current MBA students, Taylor Gambetta, completed her general MBA classes and is finishing up the supply chain management specialization courses during the fall 2014 semester.  She has accepted an internship for the spring semester with Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems and will graduate in May 2015.  “I was extremely pleased when I discovered this opportunity was available at BGSU,” states Gambetta. “The supply chain management specialization complements my accounting degree and helps give me a competitive edge in the job market.”

Tom Daniels, assistant director of the Graduate & Executive Programs in Business and the graduate coordinator for the full-time MBA program states, “For students who have an undergraduate business degree, I think the supply chain management specialization provides a great opportunity to add some powerful and relevant skills and knowledge to their portfolio.”
