Curriculum Recognized By Practitioners And Academics In State of Supply Chain Education Study
[USPRwire, Fri Mar 12 2010] The NC State Jenkins MBA has announced that its supply chain management program was ranked 20th among supply chain schools by practitioners, 14th by academics and 18th overall.
The ranking was included in “An Update on the State of Supply Chain Education,” a study led by Stanley E. Fawcett, the Donald L. Staheli Professor of Business Management at Brigham Young University, and published in Supply Chain Management Review.
Staheli and colleagues surveyed both practitioners and academics that ranked supply chain curricula across the nation based on perceptions from professional associations, the schools’ supply chain management programs and journal publications.
“It is truly an honor to have our supply chain curriculum ranked among the top 20 supply chain programs in the country,” said Steve Allen, associate dean for graduate programs and research at the North Carolina State University College of Management, which includes the Jenkins Graduate School of Management.
“Our supply chain and operations faculty, in collaboration with our Supply Chain Resource Cooperative, have worked hard over the past few years to create a curriculum for our students that combines a thorough education with real world projects to prepare them for today’s challenging global marketplace. Being recognized as one of the best in supply chain education rewards our efforts to provide the finest programs possible for our students.”
- The Supply Chain Management Concentration in the NC State Jenkins MBA program provides a stimulating, engaging environment that brings together MBA students, faculty and supply chain professionals to solve real world problems, in collaboration with the college’s Supply Chain Resource Cooperative.
- The Supply Chain Resource Cooperative was formed about a decade ago to create relationships that bring companies together with students and faculty of NC State College of Management to work on class projects, internships and research.
