Student Supply Chain Management Association (SSCMA)


The University of Houston-Downtown Student Supply Chain Management Association (SSCMA) is an active and vibrant student group on this campus.

We want student members to have fun while they are participating in and benefiting from having a platform for professional development.

The SSCMA is linked to a hierarchy of professional organizations locally and globally. Once the student becomes a member of this organization they are immediately affiliated with two others: downtown

After graduation, students are encouraged to maintain a professional relationship with these societies.

The supply chain profession is a study of the decision-making sciences that involves many areas including purchasing and the management of suppliers, inventory, operations, quality, projects, and industrial marketing and sales.

SSMCA students are recruited by industries such as:

  • Oil and gas companies
  • Transportation companies
  • Logistics suppliers
  • Manufacturers
  • Medical providers


Each semester, the SSCMA brings in speakers from local industry (past speakers have included companies like Shell, Chevron-Texaco, Continental Airlines and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center).

Field Trips

Past trips have included tours of such places as the Port of Houston and the Wal-Mart Distribution Center.
