MIDPOINTS

Supply and Demand With supply chain disruptions and resulting product shortages and delivery delays in the headlines, MTSU launched a new bachelor’s degree in Supply Chain Management earlier this year. The Jennings A. Jones College of Business pursued and received approval to transform its Supply Chain Management concentration within its Department of Management into a standalone major that provides graduates a leg up in a burgeoning job market. Letters of support for the transition came from area logistics and distribution heavyweights such as Ingram Content Group, Nissan North America, and Kasai North America, to name a few. MTSU’s Board of Trustees more recently approved a request to the state to launch a new Master of Science in Supply Chain Management.

Service to Servants A new degree program in MTSU’s University College will allow more adults and public servants to earn their bachelor’s degrees. Starting with the Fall 2022 semester, students will be able to choose the new Public Safety concentration as part of the Integrated Studies major. The degree program can be completed online and is specifically designed for those already working in law enforcement, homeland security, emergency management, fire safety, dispatch, and other public service fields at the local, state, and federal levels. The program allows adult students to convert eligible prior work and training and certifications into college credit and use up to 48 credits toward electives.
