Increase your company’s revenue and growth by enhancing its supply chain
Supply chain analysts and logisticians are critical because they ensure that every segment of a company’s supply chain is operating smoothly, thereby maximizing savings, mitigating waste and increasing overall profitability. In this program, you’ll learn the range of skills necessary to preserve an efficient daily transition of products and services, from their point of origin to consumers all over the world.
Our multidisciplinary curriculum blends core business concepts and management practices with subjects such as logistics planning, purchasing and distribution and inventory management. You’ll gain proficiency with emerging supply chain technologies, as well as a global understanding of the entire life cycle of a product, positioning you for a career as a logistics analyst, operations manager, procurement expert, contract administrator or demand planner, to name just a few.
Career readiness is a hallmark of this program. Required internships and a field-based capstone project give you the chance to solve actual challenges that real companies face in logistics or operations. Membership to APICS, the premier professional association for supply chain management, gives you access to many professional resources and connects you with a global network of supply chain professionals. Our alumni have found success with many highly respected companies, including Pratt & Whitney, United Technologies, Deloitte, Collins Aerospace and Hubbell.

“I now work for Hubbell Inc. full time as a life cycle coordinator in the operations department. I truly believe that it is because of all the information I learned and experiences I gained at Quinnipiac that I was able to obtain this job. I now find myself daily at work referring back to something I learned in a supply chain class or from talking to a professor.”Joseph Boninti ’16, MBA ’17
Turning passion into local impact
Our program frequently collaborates with the Cheshire Chamber of Commerce to create an opportunity for students to brainstorm, problem solve and learn from local businesses. During these activities our students apply their management skills toward various real business challenges in our community. They apply relevant and current learnings to enhance business areas in supply chain, operations, human resources, employee and production performance, project management, decision making and application of business ethics. This work is wholly designed, managed and executed by our students with oversight by the Cheshire Connecticut Chamber of Commerce President Yetta Augur and Management Professor Amy Paros. The impact of our management faculty combined with our unique curriculum prepares our students to be contributors in tangible and significant ways that deliver positive influence on actual businesses.
