Supply Chain Leadership Council
The Supply Chain Leadership Council (SCLC) is managed by JSOM students and alumni. The council promotes supply chain-related studies and activities.
SCLC’s primary goal is to help supply chain management students:
- expand their educational experience/knowledge,
- develop career opportunities through networking with industry professionals,
- implement best supply chain practices into the curriculum and
- build an environment for students and faculty to interact and exchange ideas.
The council works diligently with the faculty and SCM Industry Advisory Board, supply chain leaders and professional associations (ISM, APICS, INFORMS) to enhance the curriculum, develop new courses and provide guest speakers, field trips, case competitions, scholarships and certificates to members.
SCLC also works with the Jindal School’s Career Management Center to organize networking and recruiting events and career workshops.
The Supply Chain Leadership Council is comprised of a select group of undergraduate and graduate students and alumni who have been chosen to serve on the council.
The council meets regularly to assist the Supply Chain Management program with two important objectives:
