Jacob, Host at Logistics Degree:
Question: What was the hardest class you took while studying supply chain management?
Corben, Supply Chain Manager:
Answer: Yeah, so I took an accounting class because, you know, there’s a business base and I really struggled in accounting, mostly due to my own lack of effort. So at the end of the day, I think many universities and the professors will help you succeed if you actually asked for help. Now, you might have to humble yourself and go to their office hours. They might be weird or nerdy. That’s OK. They can help you get what you need. So and if they can help you find a friend. There are ways to succeed. And looking back, I wish I would have learned that now, because as an adult, you have to deal with accounting.
William, Director of Operations:
Answer: If you’re not really a math person, then maybe you’ll stay away from the analysis course. Or if you’re not really a tech person, systems will be tough for you. But the supply chain, the inventory, the procurement ones, I think those are definitely the easiest ones. I think when you get more specialized, it gets more difficult.
Alexander, Supply Chain and Procurement:
Answer: The hardest class I took my bachelor’s degree in supply chain. I would definitely say my supply chain, operational analytics class. So that class was specifically designed to enhance your ability to, I guess, think efficiently. So it was a very math based class and it was more towards how can we create an efficient distribution map for all of our distribution centers will be based on a variety of different factors, which could be how much rainfall does this region have, how much snow is this region have during the winter time, and how much demand. Do we have during that time period? How far is it from most of our customers, this and that? So I think that was a favorite, but also the hardest class I took my bachelor’s.
Answer: The hardest class for me was an SAP business process management class. SAP is a software that does ERP or enterprise resource planning. It was super challenging. But very rewarding.
Haley, Logistics Project Manager:
Answer: Data analytics and machine learning. I’ve touched a lot on that, but I think it’s because it was so different to me and so new that it was a steep and difficult learning curve. But it’s also one of the most beneficial classes that I took because as I’ve touched on many, many times during this conversation, as data analytics is such a critical skill and so helpful for people in this industry.
