Manufacturing facilities across the east Tennessee area provide vital products, and thousands of jobs...
making these facilities an important part of our local and national economies.
In collaboration with DENSO Manufacturing in Athens, Tennessee, the industrial management concentration prepares students to hold management-level positions in the manufacturing industry.
In addition to the business administration core requirements, the emphasis in industrial management provides students with additional knowledge in areas such as logistics, supply chain management and international management.
The industrial management concentration was developed as a result of a need identified by DENSO Manufacturing, a large local manufacturer. The degree provides training and preparation for manufacturing careers, including but not limited to, DENSO.
Degrees within the Goodfriend School of Business, including the industrial management concentration, provide numerous opportunities to connect with seasoned business professionals, both faculty members and business partners who take a direct interest in the development of our students.
Students also have the opportunity to develop other business skills through minors in Business or Entrepreneurship, as well as a pre-MBA minor, preparing students to get the Master’s in Business Administration.
