SCM Industry Advisory Board

The Supply Chain Management (SCM) Industry Advisory Board (IAB) at Naveen Jindal School of Management nurtures a mutually beneficial intellectual exchange of ideas between university scholars and their knowledgeable counterparts in industry.

The IAB provides input to and feedback on current and future supply chain programs to ensure that the knowledge, skills and abilities acquired by program graduates meet marketplace demand. IAB participants have an opportunity to assume a leadership role in the recruiting and hiring of UT Dallas SCM students and have an opportunity to network with other SCM executives.
