On August 6th, 2010, Supply Chain Management (SCM) program directors, faculty, and members of professional organizations came together for a One-Day Symposium hosted by the Department of Operations & Supply Chain Management at Cleveland State University (CSU).
The Symposium, titled, "Developing a State-of-the-Art Supply Chain Program," allowed the attendees and presenters to exchange information and share experiences of recognized Supply Chain programs. Featured topics included learning from best practices, issues with recruiting students, and challenges with developing program recognition.
After opening remarks by Dr. Oya Tukel (chair of the OSM Department at CSU), directors and professors from Michigan State University, Ohio State University, Bowling Green State University, and Columbus State Community College made presentations on the curriculum, best practices, and resources of their SCM departments.
In the afternoon, speakers from APICS, Penske, Solar Impact, and the Consulate General of Canada made presentations and participated in an hour-long panel discussion moderated by Perry Trunick, Associate Editor of Inbound Logistics Magazine.
The Symposium ended with closing remarks from Dr. Bob Scherer, Dean of the Nance College of Business. The OSM Department thanks all of the presenters, attendees, and staff who made the Symposium possible!
