SEATTLE, June 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the economy improves and Seattle-based companies like Amazon, Starbucks and Boeing continue to lead in their category the need for supply chain managers multiplies. In response, City University of Seattle is proud to now offer a new Master of Science in Integrated Supply Chain Management. Online courses begin this fall, and applications are being accepted now.
