Supply Chain Management

The opportunity to study abroad in Dublin, Ireland, for the mini-term this year was by far one of the most beneficial that I’ve had in my three years at UT. Academically and professionally, I benefitted from the hands-on nature of our learning experiences; I believe that they even surpassed what I could have learned from a textbook or other in-class materials. Having site visits and guest speakers who represented an impressive variety of backgrounds and industries in Ireland was one of my favorite parts of the course, as they really brought the concepts of global strategic management to life.
