Supply Chain Research Center

The Supply Chain Management (SCM) Research Center is the vehicle by which the UHD Bachelor of Business Administration in SCM program and industry interact.

The SCM degree program employs a reality-based curriculum made possible by the mutually beneficial working relationships between the UHD Davies College of Business and local business and philanthropic communities. The program is driven by real-life cases, examples, speakers, visits and projects.

The Research Center enables students to participate in:

  • Research projects,
  • Professional organizations,
  • Speaker presentations,
  • Community projects,
  • Conferences, and
  • Round-table discussions.

In addition, when a company has a particular problem or issue that our faculty and students can assist with resolving, the experience serves as a tremendous learning opportunity for the students.

Internships and Career Opportunities

Through the Research Center, UHD’s Bachelor of Business Administration in Supply Chain Management program is uniquely positioned to serve the community by providing students with the skills, knowledge, theoretical foundation and practical experience to succeed.

Students are encouraged to explore their options for obtaining:

  • Student internships
  • Part-time work positions, or
  • Full-time employment (in which case students are encouraged to finish their degrees through online, evening and/or weekend programs).

Types of student or research projects that SCM faculty and students have worked on include:

  • Inventory management
  • Facility layout
  • Supply chain management
  • Project management
  • Purchasing and procurement projects
  • Market research
  • Systems and information management
