Trustees recommend new business major
Bloomsburg University’s Council of Trustees recommended approval of a new major in Supply Chain Management at their meeting on Wednesday, June 3. The new major will next go before the State System’s Board of Governors for approval. Supply Chain Management has been a College of Business concentration and track for more than a decade.
According to Ira K. Blake, BU’s provost and senior vice president for Academic Affairs, the program has grown in popularity over the past five years from about four students completing it in 2010 to 30 students completing it in May 2015. She added that few universities offer a major in supply chain management, which has been identified as a growing career field with median salaries in the range of $47,000 to $103,000 a year.
