Glancing out of my office window on the first warm days of spring, I always appreciate the beauty of Bloomsburg University’s campus.
With that beauty comes the bittersweet realization that commencement is in the very near future. We will soon say “goodbye, for now” to talented students who are setting out to create a future that is all their own. It can seem overwhelming and more than a little scary but, built on the foundation of a Bloomsburg University education, they are well prepared for the next phase of their lives.
I wish the very best to all who are receiving bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degrees this May. I am proud of their many accomplishments in the classroom, on the athletics field and in the organizations that make Bloomsburg so special and delighted by the close relationships these graduates formed with the dedicated faculty who mentored their research and supervised their internships and community service opportunities.
Our Supply Chain Management program is designed using competency models from leading professional organizations. Recognizing the interdisciplinary nature of SCM, the program draws expertise from all business disciplines — accounting, finance, information technology management, management, and marketing — and integrates content through collaborative course design and delivery.
