Oklahoma’s economy is driven by sectors like aerospace, manufacturing, bioscience, and more, but the fuel behind each key sector is transportation and logistics. The state boasts robust transportation infrastructure, including two international airports, 135 public-use airports, 3,850 miles of rail, and 12,000 miles of highway. More than 800 million tons of freight flowed through these channels in 2022 alone. That traffic requires sound demand, procurement, and logistics strategies for businesses to succeed.
Students interested in pursuing a degree in supply chain management will find ample opportunities in the Show Me state. New legislation will give college graduates a two-year reprieve from paying income taxes should they stay and work in the state. When the average supply chain manager makes double the median household income for Oklahoma, that’s not exactly chump change.
