As you may have read recently in the “Dalton Daily Citizen” newspaper, the C. Lamar and Ann Wright School of Business at Dalton State College will offer a new major in Logistics and Supply Chain Management, beginning fall 2017.
Most of the companies in the Dalton area are confronted with Logistics and Supply Chain Management issues every day. We have redesigned a number of our former operations management courses and combined them with courses in logistics (formerly housed in our bachelor’s degree in marketing) and added new courses to create our new major.
We need your help to make this degree a success for businesses in our community. First we need you to volunteer as class speakers in your area of expertise. Also if you have a master’s degree in field, we are always seeking adjunct/part-time faculty to teach in our business programs.
We need opportunities for students to work as interns in your company to prepare for the world of work. Also as you have entry-level job opening, we’d love to keep these smart DSC graduates in our area. We know our students could benefit from working with you in a win-win situation for us both.
Our new major will offer a wide range of courses, including:
· Integrated Material/Supply Chain
· Supply Chain Management Systems
· Global Strategies for Supply Chain Management (Capstone)
· Quality Management Systems
· Database Management Systems
· Business Processes Simulation
· Business Analytics and Data Mining
· Statistics for Process Control
