Field Placement

The field placement experience in the Supply Chain and Operations Management curriculum is an integral part of the student's education and preparation for the workforce. The student will secure an unpaid Supply Chain and Operations Management position with an employer for 20 working days. The student will establish mutually agreed-upon performance objectives with the employer, complete the tasks, be evaluated by the employer on job performance and professionalism, and be evaluated by the faculty advisors based on the completion of required reports. The field placement will be arranged independently by the student based on his or her skills and career interests and must be approved by the Field Placement Coordinators. Assistance in securing a field placement position will be provided by the Field Placement Coordinators, but it is ultimately the student's responsibility to secure a placement which will allow him or her to meet individual objectives for this experience.
