Your future career path with an MBA specialising in Supply Chain Management

There are a myriad of career options available to MBA supply chain management graduates. Supply chain management specialists are very much in demand as analysts who can judge industry-wide trends and optimally apply them. They may also be required to analyse product life cycles, better manufacturing infrastructure, survey international logistics, oversee staffing and monitor distribution and sales. As a graduate, you will also have the option of working independently or working in a third party consultancy. You can then perform research and analysis to present supply chain solutions to other businesses. Careers such as an Industry analyst, project manager, supply chain consultant, transportation director, global logistics manager, and purchasing manager are some of the lucrative career options that you can pursue. 

Senior Supply Chain Manager

This career is fast-paced and multifaceted. You will be responsible for negotiating with contractors and stakeholders from across the world, identifying and leading process improvement projects to solve complex problems across the supply chain. This requires great communication skills as well as a good knowledge of the business ramifications of your decisions in the role.

Purchasing Manager

The responsibilities of a purchasing manager vary depending on the industry, with a focus on either raw materials or finished products. As a purchasing manager, you will study the market to identify price trends and future availability of materials and goods; locate vendors; negotiate prices; prepare requisitions and purchase orders; as well as maintain purchase records. You often manage other professionals in the supply chain and procurement area of the business and will work as part of a wider team, requiring business know-how and soft skills you can gain at IU.
