Supply chains span the globe. An effective supply chain is the most strategic weapon in the armory of today’s global
businesses. Companies like Wal-Mart, Apple, and Zara are world leaders in their respective industries due to their
superlative supply chains. Managing supply chains is both a real and virtual integration for end-to-end fulfillment
between business partners to meet and exceed the bottom line.
The Center for Supply Management Research at the Scott College of Business serves as a think-tank to the Marketing and Operations
Department at Indiana State University and provides career aspirants in supply management with a solid platform to understand supply
management by interacting with the best in the business. The Center partners extensively with a host of industry leaders committed
to the excellence of supply management in diverse industries ranging from aircraft engines to Blu-ray discs to baking soda! We take
pride in our association with a corporate team that includes the likes of Clabber Girl, Sony DADC, GE Aviation, North American Lighting,
Total Quality Logistics, Masterbrand Cabinets Inc., Distributors Terminal Inc., and Delta Faucet, among others.
