Supply Chain Management Directors’ Conference 2014
No Registration Fee
- Are you responsible for developing and managing supply chain programs?
- Are you experiencing difficulties in recruiting new students?
- Are you in the process of enhancing your supply chain curriculum?
- Would you like to build quality relationships with industries to market your programs?
- Would you like to improve your internship outcomes or the overall ranking of your SCM programs?
If you experience these issues, then you are not alone. That is why the UT Dallas (Naveen Jindal School of Management) has joined forces with University of San Diego, School of Business Administration and Gartner (Supply Chain Talent Program) to bring a unique colloquium specific to program directors, assistant/associate deans and center managers who are involved in developing and managing different aspects of supply chain management programs and curriculum.
This conference is a premier colloquium for designing, developing, and even reinventing SCM programs. We plan to encourage thought-provoking conversations, debates on the several issues confronting us, and discussions of emerging ideas to promote program success at every level from the classroom through the dean’s suite.
