  • Demonstrate the knowledge and skills necessary for managing modern businesses with the focus of designing and managing modern supply chain networks, including integrated operations, manufacturing, logistics, purchasing and distribution for value-creating, ERP-supported networks.
  • Demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and abilities of organizing and managing projects in modern organizations. These project management skills include project portfolio management, scheduling and coordinating resources, planning and controlling projects, and risk and change management.

Academic Advising

The objectives of the university’s academic advising program are to help advisees identify and achieve their academic goals, to promote their intellectual discovery, and to encourage students to take advantage of both in-and out-of class educational opportunities in order that they become self-directed learners and decision makers.

Both advisers and advisees share responsibility for making the advising relationship succeed. By encouraging their advisees to become engaged in their education, to meet their educational goals, and to develop the habit of learning, advisers assume a significant educational role. The advisee’s unit of enrollment will provide each advisee with a primary academic adviser, the information needed to plan the chosen program of study, and referrals to other specialized resources.
