The Business Administration program at UW-Stout is unique in that it blends business with technology. It has a solid foundation of general-liberal studies and covers the functional areas of marketing, manufacturing, finance, personnel, accounting and law.

Keeping pace with the demands of the ever-changing business environment, the business degree at UW-Stout has added a concentration in supply chain management. Recognizing that this is a specialized skill that is being driven by globalization, cost control and increased customer service levels and high quality requirements; the business program has reached out to give our students an opportunity to specialize in this critical area of commerce. Supply chain management encompasses all logistics management activities. Since this area of business integrates supply and demand management within and across companies, and represents approximately 70 to 80 percent of the cost structure of a typical company; it is necessary to operate an efficient supply chain in order to compete. Thus businesses have deemed this to be a critical business function and skill.
