The University of Houston-Downtown Student Supply Chain Management Association (SSCMA) is dedicated to exploring the field of supply chain management, connecting with faculty and industry leaders, and making lifelong friends and contacts.
SSCMA officers are leaders in the supply chain discipline at UHD. Student members benefit further by attending site visits, job and interview workshops, and from access to job and internship opportunities.
SSCMA is linked to a number of professional supply chain management organizations locally and globally.
SSCMA members (and all students) are encouraged to join these
organizations and to maintain a professional relationship with these societies
The supply chain profession is a study of decision-making sciences that
involves many areas, including procurement, negotiation, the management of
suppliers, inventory, production and operations, logistics, quality, projects,
and industrial marketing and sales.
SSMCA students are recruited by industries such as:
- Oil and gas companies
- Medical providers
Students who are interested in becoming SSCMA members, as well as
employers who wish to become involved, should contact any one of the
organization’s leaders or the advisors listed to the right.
