Shanghai Maritime University introduced a new undergraduate major -- supply chain management (SCM) -- this fall semester.

The decision to add the new major was meant to spur the development of the Lingang New Area of the China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone, the university said.

Liu Bin, dean of the school of economic management, said the establishment of the SCM major will help satisfy Lingang New Area's need for high-end talents in supply chain finance, logistics, and trade.

Less than 10 universities in China currently offer SCM majors, and Shanghai Maritime University is trying to blaze a trail in the field.

The university said it would take advantage of its strength in shipping, logistics, and maritime fields to ensure the SCM discipline offers a high-quality education.

The SCM curriculum includes 30 courses on topics such as SCM frontiers, inventory management and control, and big data theory and application.

The SCM major is part of the university's school of economic management. Students in the major will learn the basics of economic management before moving onto a variety of professional studies.

Upper-class SCM students will be given the necessary skills to work at specific enterprises.

Graduates are likely to work in the manufacturing, transportation, or logistics industries.
