The Inland Empire is one of the nation’s leading centers for supply chain management. The supply chain industry is also one of the fastest growing industries in the area, creating many job opportunities for the area’s residents. Chaffey College’s Supply Chain Management program prepares students for a career in the supply chain industry. Students gain a working knowledge of transportation, warehousing, and supply chain management in addition to the skills needed to efficiently operate and manage a warehouse or distribution center. Students study the principles and methods for moving people or products by air, rail, sea, or road, including the relative costs and benefits of each option. Students also obtain knowledge of production processes and quality control systems. Courses provide a solid grounding in supply chain management, transportation management, quality management, business law, and accounting. Upon completion of the Supply Chain Management degree or certificate, students may be able to qualify for entry level managerial positions in the field of supply chain management. Students completing the Associate’s degree have the opportunity to pursue an academic pathway from Chaffey College to the Bachelor’s degree program in Supply Chain Management at California State University – San Bernardino (CSUSB). Students are advised to consult with a counselor for more information on degree or certificate requirements, or university admission and transfer requirements.
