Who We Are
Driven by our Volunteer spirit and our passion for understanding and impacting how things really work, the Global Supply Chain Institute (GSCI) wants to partner with companies to help identify their supply chain management (SCM) strategy and develop their people. It was in this spirit of engagement and impact that the departments of supply chain management and graduate and executive education in the Haslam College of Business created GSCI to extend relationships to industry and to drive an impact on the profession.
Mission and Intent: The Global Supply Chain Institute shapes and influences the practice of supply chain management by serving as the preeminent global hub for leading practitioners, academics, and students to learn, network, and connect.
Why partner with GSCI?
We view industry as our laboratory and embrace a different way of interacting with companies than other universities. Our engagement with industry fuels our research and colors the curriculum we teach. By partnering with industry leaders, GSCI ensures our students have access to the best resources, and that our teaching and research focus on critical real-world issues. These partnerships allow us to equip students with the education and experience outside the classroom necessary to strengthen corporations in an increasingly competitive business environment.
