15086 ratings | 2162408 views
Part 1 of 12 - This module introduces viewers to the field of supply chain management. It describes the complex supply chain of a simple product, a bottle of water. The video also illustrates the importance of supply chain managers and their skill sets in our modern global economy for both manufacturing and service industries. In defining supply chain management, the video also hopes to educate and inspire business students, young and old, about the opportunities available to those with supply chain management degrees. This is the first installment in Arizona State University's twelve-part introduction to supply chain management video series. ASU, the W. P. Carey School of Business, and the Supply Chain Management Department are proud and happy to share this video series with supply chain management departments, supply chain instructors, career specialists in high schools and universities, as well as industry leaders in an effort to inspire a new generation of supply chain management professionals across the country and around the world. Further installments in this series will be made available during the spring of 2010. For more information, visit W. P. Carey's SCM Web site at http://wpcarey.asu.edu/scm or send an e-mail to wpcarey.scm@asu.edu.

I really want to get into supply chain but my school doesn’t offer it. I have the chance to major in business administration, marketing, accounting, computer science and civil engineering but I’m leaning more toward the business majors( business, accounting, marketing) which one should I pick? And how can I break into the supply chain industry? Should I get certs or get a masters in supply chain ?

Basically we need to stop drinking bottled watered let alone half the other things we are purchasing which btw has much to do with being prepared and planning ahead or in other words becoming better supply chain consumers. It's a waste of our resources to do otherwise.

there are a ton of consumers who are completely blind, naive & unaware of supply chain management (scm). most think scm is a 2 step protocol.

Oh, so you know most consumers? And you know that they are "completely blind, naive & unaware?" Failed logic.
