The Supply Chain Management Center is dedicated to conducting research and education designed to further the discipline of supply chain management. The Center operates under a single strategic vision for supply chain management: The collaborative, real-time, end-to-end, risk-tolerant supply chain.
This vision drives our work and our areas of focus, which include:
- Integrating supply chain best practices, thought leadership and technologies into the undergraduate and graduate programs in Supply Chain Management at the Smith School
- Executing a supply chain thought leadership research agenda that supports the supply chain curriculum at all levels
- Publishing and otherwise disseminating Center research work through online and print mediums
- Enhancing the overall Smith School brand as an acknowledged leader in supply chain education and research.
Through innovative initiatives and programs, the SCMC has earned a reputation for excellence in supply chain management education and research among students, practitioners and policymakers.
