University Park, Smeal College of Business (SC&IS)

PROFESSOR JOHN E. TYWORTH, Chair of the Department of Supply Chain and Information Systems

The SC&IS major concentrates on the management of value-creating supply chain networks that modern business enterprises use to acquire, produce, and deliver goods and services all over the world and on information technology as the key enabler of supply chain integration. Students learn how to analyze and design supply chains and manage core business processes including (1) sourcing and procuring raw materials, (2) manufacturing, and service operations, and (3) planning and fulfilling customer demand. Students also develop knowledge, skills, and abilities in the information systems area, including information processing, databases, information systems design and analysis, and supply chain technologies.

Graduates are well-prepared for careers in the supply chain and information systems area in both industry and government, including manufacturing, service, technology, and merchandising companies, third-party logistics providers, transport system enterprises, consulting firms, and government agencies. More information about the broad range of career opportunities is available at www.smeal.psu/scis/recruit.html.
