New Business Option in Operations and Supply Chain Management at UW Seattle’s Foster School of Business

By Vikki Haag Day, Assistant Dean, Undergraduate Programs, Foster School of Business

Beginning Autumn Quarter 2012, the Foster School of Business added an option to the ways a student might specialize a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration. The Operations and Supply Chain Management (OSCM) option covers concepts related to the design, planning, control, and improvement of manufacturing and service operations. This option incorporates project management, service delivery systems, product development, business analytics, as well as inventory and supply chain management.

Why this option? Washington is home to several major companies who use the most innovative practices in operations and supply chain management. Amazon.com, Costco, PACCAR, Starbucks and Boeing create market demand for graduates in this field.

Admission to the Foster School is competitive. Please consult the website to assure all prerequisites and application requirements are met. While at the community college, students interested in the option in Operations and Supply Chain Management should work on prerequisites for the business school listed there. Once admitted to the Foster School, students may choose accounting, entrepreneurship, finance, human resources management, information systems, marketing, operations and supply chain management or general business as an option.
