Advisory Board

The Global Supply Chain Institute’s advisory board continually challenges us to pursue research and develop students who can make an immediate impact to the value in their supply chains.

Advisory board members are all members of our Supply Chain Forum and engage with us additionally in one or more of the following ways:

  • Partnering with us to improve their supply chain through audits, white papers or research sponsorships.
  • Enrolling their employees with the highest potential in our executive education programs.
  • Helping give our students real experience through internships, student projects or by hiring them.

Advisory board members enjoy special recruiting assistance and supply chain advising services.

If you are interested in becoming an advisory board member contact us.
