Program description - September 2025

The Supply Chain and Operations Management program will help you prepare for successful careers in the growing, dynamic, and underserved field of supply chain management.

The supply chain sector is critically important to Canada's economy. The sector employs approximately 870,000 Canadians, accounts for an estimated $500 billion in total export goods from Canada, and is responsible for planning, coordinating and moving more than $1 trillion worth of goods each year. Forecasts project more than 27,000 supply chain positions in Canada sit unfilled, and another estimated 66,000 openings in the foreseeable future.

To introduce agility and flexibility into today's complex supply chain environments, organizations require diverse, collaborative professionals who can make critical decisions and implement new technologies that streamline operations — from development to fulfillment.

This program takes a hands-on, project-oriented approach and provides you with opportunities to work with current business and industry partners. You will participate in many exciting projects, culminating in 2 applied capstone courses during your final term of study. You will get hands-on experiential learning using ERP systems, decision support models, and integrated analytics. You will also work with an industry partner from our local community to complete an onsite value stream mapping project for a real company. Some students receive job offers from their industry partners upon completion.

After graduation, you can apply to positions such as transportation manager, manufacturing manager, tracking and scheduling coordination occupation, production and transportation logistics coordinator, air transport ramp attendant, or transportation route and crew scheduler.
