2014/15 Program

Bachelor of Commerce – Supply Chain Management

Our Program

Humber’s Bachelor of Commerce – Supply Chain Management is a four-year program accredited by the Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council that provides grounding in both general business knowledge and specialized supply chain skills across a wide range of industries. Our emphasis on hands-on experience enables you to stand out in a highly competitive global marketplace.

In the first two years of your program, you’ll receive a thorough understanding of basic business fundamentals, including marketing, economics, accounting and law. Once you reach your third and fourth years, you’ll be enrolled in specialized courses related to supply change management, focusing on using current theories, methods and techniques to problem solve and develop supply chain management strategies.

Humber’s professors are widely known and respected for their real-world experience and industry contacts. Our supply chain specialists use case studies and our project-based curriculum to help you apply your classroom learning to real-life situations. A senior-level business project in your fourth year allows you to gain experience with problem solving and decision-making in a team-based environment.

Because our Bachelor of Commerce degrees follow a common curriculum for the first two years, you may be eligible to transfer programs if you find your passion lies somewhere other than Supply Chain Management. Other areas include Accounting, e-Business Marketing, Fashion Management, Finance, Hospitality and Tourism Management, Human Resources Management, International Business, Management Studies or Marketing.

Your Career

In today’s hyper-competitive marketplace, operating as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible is critical. Because supply chain cost represents the majority of the cost of goods/services sold, knowledge of supply chain management is a top priority for employers. Top Canadian and international companies, such as Walmart, Toyota, Apple, Loblaw and BlackBerry, use their supply chains as a main competitive advantage to gain market share and profit.

Supply chain management involves co-ordinating an entire network of companies and business processes across the globe to ensure that products are designed, produced, delivered and serviced smoothly and effectively.

  • analyst of information systems and processes
