Our collaboration with Ryder means that their multi-billion-dollar expertise is reflected in everything you’ll study here.

What will my career look like?

Supply Chain is huge, so you’ll have tons of options, but most students discover which piece of the supply chain puzzle they have a passion for by their 2nd or 3rd year. If you enjoy problem-solving, it may be logistics. If you like working with people, you may point towards sourcing or operations. You may work in analysis, inventory, distribution, transportation or production.

How do I know if I’m interested in this major?

If you like working through problems or solving puzzles, if you like interacting with people, if you are looking for a degree that opens a ton of doors to different high-growth careers, if you are curious about how things work, and if you’re looking for a way to take part in the global economy you should consider this major.

What is a flipped classroom?

A flipped classroom is one where the focus is not on lectures, but on discussion, projects, and problem-solving. Students in flipped classrooms get the chance for more instructor feedback, and as a result have been found to learn much, much faster.

What does live class optional mean?

Flexibility. Optional live sessions mean our courses can be completed asynchronously, but you will still have the ability to attend live sessions with your instructor. Many students prefer learning that comes with live interactions, while other students love the flexibility of doing them whenever they fit into their schedule.

Who will be in my class?

This major is part of an exclusive partnership between [COLLEGE] and Rize Education, which means you’ll be learning with students from your campus, as well as students from a selective consortium of schools across the country. The goal is to help you begin building a national network of people in your industry before you’ve even graduated.
