Supply Chain Management
Supply Chain Management is the handling of the entire production flow of a good or service from raw materials to final product delivery. Supply chain managers plan, source, organize products and see them through the manufacturing process, and coordinate the logistics of product delivery and returns.
The number of jobs in supply chain management is expected to grow at an estimated rate of 13% in the Lehigh Valley and 28% nationally. Moravian’s School of Business and Economics will prepare you to meet this strong and continued demand for professionals in supply chain management!

The 4+1 program provides our undergraduate students the opportunity to earn two degrees in one stop. Couple your undergraduate degree with any one of our four business master’s degrees. How? You’ll begin taking graduate-level courses in your senior year to help you transition into a full, final year of graduate studies.
An internship is an opportunity to apply theory to practice. It’s a chance to gain perspective on what you learned in the classroom, self reflect, and 'try it out' before graduation. Moravian students have interned at national and regional organizations including Independence Blue Cross and Disney World. Moravian students have also interned at amazing Lehigh Valley-based companies including Air Products, B Braun Medical, Boys and Girls Club of Bethlehem, Crayola, and many more.
Students in all areas of study are encouraged to participate in research and explore their passions at Moravian. Opportunities consist of the Honors Program, InFocus, and Student Opportunities for Academic Research (SOAR).
Sophomore year is the perfect time for a study abroad opportunity, or, as we like to call it, a “Global Greyhound Trip.” The Elevate experience includes a faculty-led trip to one of our featured destinations, like the Czech Republic or Costa Rica, at little to no extra cost to students!
