Batavia, NY - Tuition Scholarship. Online, flexible study times. Great career potential. These are just the first three reasons why anyone considering a new career direction that almost guarantees job opportunity should explore the Genesee Community College’s Supply Chain Management (SCM) summer scholarship program.
Another reason is that U.S. Labor Department forecasts 26% growth in SCM jobs through the year 2020. Perhaps most dynamically for older students who may be juggling many other responsibilities, SCM concentration is part of the GCC’s Business Administration program and is available 100% online—giving students full flexibility to study on their own schedule.
SCM deals directly with procurement, manufacturing, distribution, warehousing, inventory and customer service. Supply chain managers manage the successful coordination of all these elements. Today’s business savvy companies rely as much on their supply chain personnel as they do their CFO to positively impact their bottom line.
GCC’s $500 SCM Summer 2014 Scholarship covers the full cost of tuition for the Principles of Business Logistics (BLM101) course and is open to anyone interested in a future business career. (The book and college fees are not covered by the tuition scholarship.) The SCM Scholarship application deadline is May 21, 2014.
Current or returning GCC students just need to complete the SCM Scholarship worksheet and essay by going to: http://www.genesee.edu/offices/finaid/scholarships/. A single page essay reflecting on the applicant’s interest in SCM should be sent to Tanya Lane-Martin, Genesee Community College Admissions, One College Rd., Batavia, NY 14020. Applicants can also scan and email their essay to firstname.lastname@example.org.
New GCC students need to contact the College’s Admissions Office and complete the College’s admissions application by calling 1-866-CALL-GCC or by completing the online application at: http://www.genesee.edu/offices/admissions/apply/
Dennis Sullivan, GCC’s lead SCM faculty member is a seasoned supply chain professional and currently serves as president, vice president or principal with three management consulting firms including Supply Chain Optimizers, LLC. He carefully covers the course curriculum in a pace that allows students to appreciate the massive growth in today's global commerce which has given rise to enormous new opportunity for supply chain managers. “We’ve developed an excellent curriculum for the SCM program at GCC,” Sullivan said. “It addresses all the key elements of SCM. Students will be prepared for a variety of career options when they complete this program.”
