On August 6th, 2010, there will be a Symposium taking place in the Nance College of Business at CSU, focusing on designing a state-of-the-art Supply Chain curriculum, learning from best practices, issues with recruiting students, and challenges with developing program recognition.
Supply Chain Management has been gaining importance in the business community and has become a major discipline at many business schools. While we all are feeling the immediate need to educate the next generation supply chain managers, we might not be comfortable with the content and completeness of the curriculum. Many of us are revising and expanding our supply chain curriculum, and some of us have even changed the name of our existing program from Operations Management to Supply Chain Management to become more relevant to business needs. Clearly, more collaborations and benchmarking among the SCM programs would be beneficial for a healthy growth of the discipline.
This Symposium will bring together SCM program directors, faculty, and members of professional organizations and will provide a platform for the exchange of information and the sharing of experiences of recognized Supply Chain programs.
The Symposium will take place in the Sweet Seminar Room (UR 241) at Cleveland State University, Cleveland, Ohio on Friday, August 6th, 2010 from 9:30 am to 5:00 pm. The program outline is as follows:
