Supply Chain/Logistics Option
Associate of Applied Business


A critical part of the business world is the process of moving raw materials from suppliers to manufacturers and then on to warehouses, retailers, and customers. Without appropriate planning, factories may be without materials needed to make goods and meet manufacturing deadlines. Students who select the Supply Chain/Logistics option within MTC’s Associate of Applied Business (AAB) Business Management program will develop knowledge and skills to master logistics, import/export, and customer service. Graduates with knowledge in this growing field are needed to keep a variety of businesses -  from health care to manufacturing to retail to agribusiness to government – supplied with the goods they need to succeed. As supply chain is a dynamic part of any business environment, MTC in partnership with Lorain County Community College’s curriculum reflects the latest trends for local and regional employers. Supply chain business students will learn how to plan logistics, find raw supplies, and work with internal and external customers, suppliers and partners to ensure business timelines and goals are met.
