The University of Tennessee, Knoxville’s Haslam College of Business is currently accepting applications for spring 2020 enrollment in its top-ranked Executive MBA for Global Supply Chain.

The 11-month program allows professionals the opportunity to earn a degree in global supply chain while earning an EMBA that The Economist ranks as No. 1 in student relevance, and at the college Gartner ranks No. 2 in the nation for graduate supply chain programs.  

The program, designed to provide students with a global perspective, will include four residence periods – two at UT and two abroad, in Europe and Asia, exposing students to some of the world’s busiest supply chain hubs.

Haslam’s Executive MBA for Global Supply Chain provides each student with a personal leadership coach for the duration of the program as well as the first year following the program’s completion. Taught by industry leaders and top-ranked faculty with decades of experience, the EMBA for Global Supply Chain connects its students to its Global Supply Chain Institute and a robust corporate network that includes partners such as 3M, Amazon, AT&T and Google.

The program requires just 30 days out of the office, making it one of the most convenient of its kind. Many students are sponsored, in part or full, by their employers. 

Shay Scott, program director, says the EMBA-Global Supply Chain experience is one of a kind. “Our Executive MBA program offers students the unparalleled opportunity to learn from supply chain experts while gaining hands-on, feet-on-the-ground experience at real, international supply hubs,” he says. “Our Executive MBA can be the key to unlocking growth in your career while gaining a level of supply chain expertise for you and your organization that can’t be found elsewhere.”
