Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Leadership, Supply Chain Systems

Organizations of all kinds rely on leaders to help them grow, thrive, and realize their objectives, and those professionals with knowledge of supply chain systems are even more valuable to the businesses they serve. Brandman recognized the demand for those with this powerful combination of skills and created its Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Leadership degree with an emphasis in Supply Chain Systems with them in mind. The program’s dynamic curriculum emphasizes both theory and practice through comprehensive course work that includes principles of communication, marketing, human resources, economics, and organizational behavior.  

In addition, since leaders are meant to inspire others to work towards a common vision, students learn to foster team building and practice ethical decision making in the workplace. They will be able to navigate through the nuances of labor relations, understand information systems, and effectively employ project management skills to implement strategies across supply chains. Brandman offers its organizational leadership degree in supply chain systems in both fully online and on campus blended formats, giving students the flexibility to fit school work into their busy schedules. Its School of Business also offers a minor in organizational leadership to undergraduate students completing a bachelor’s degree in a different area of study. In addition Brandman offers its organizational leadership degree in organization administration.

What Jobs Can I Get with My Degree?

For centuries, civilizations around the world have invented new methods of transporting goods from one place to another to support their commerce and economies. The need for these services is even more critical in modern day due to the rise of globalization, new technologies, and the advancements in the speed of transportation. The world is increasingly demanding more qualified leaders who can help create efficiencies and find sustainable solutions for business operations. Brandman’s supply chain systems degree program prepares students for entry and mid-level supervisory positions in a variety of industries. Supply chain students may consider becoming logisticians, who manage the entire product life cycle, which includes how it is acquired, distributed, allocated, and delivered. This operational role is projected to grow by 22% from 2012-2022, much faster than the average job for all occupations. Other career possibilities for graduates include positions as customs brokers, information technology specialists, and procurement managers, all which can apply to multiple industries.
