Supply Chain Managers oversee the process in which materials, information and finances flow from supplier to consumer.
In November 2015, it was reported that more than 11 million people were working in the supply chain field. However, the need for supply chain management graduates continues to increase across the globe. It has been reported that the demand for supply chain professionals exceeds supply by 6 to 1.
Some of the careers in high demand include:

Over the last five years, more than 90% of Supply Chain graduates have found jobs within six months of graduation. In fact, many students have jobs lined up before they graduate.
The average starting salary for Supply Chain Management graduates is around $58,000 with median mid-career salaries of over $100,000.
