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 also work in analysis, inventory, distribution, transportation or production.
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.
WHO WILL BE IN MY CLASS?
The courses in this program are part of an exclusive partnership between ENC 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. That means you get to enjoy the small Christian college environment while also building a national network of people in your industry before you’ve even graduated.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I’M INTERESTED IN THIS PROGRAM?
If you like working through problems or solving puzzles, if you like interacting with people, 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 field.
WHAT DOES OPTIONAL SYNCHRONOUS MEAN?
Flexibility. Optional Synchronous means our Supply Chain courses can be attended together at one time with other students or on your own schedule. Many students prefer the learning that comes with live interactions, while other students love the flexibility of doing their courses whenever it fits into their schedule.
WAS THIS PROGRAM REALLY CREATED WITH RYDER?
Yes! The only way to make sure our program gives you the skills you need to get hired and teaches you to work through real-world problems is to partner with the people out there who are actually doing it. Our collaboration with Ryder means that their multi-billion-dollar expertise is reflected in everything you’ll study here.
