Sharpening the Decision-Making Process

The vice president of supply chain planning and logistics for a company producing chocolates knew she wanted to attend the Haslam Global Supply Chain EMBA when she read marketing materials with information about the program’s Organizational Action Project.

During the eleven-month program and her OAP, the vice president improved her finance and accounting skills. This talent development sharpened her decision-making process, she said. Her growth allowed her to occupy a more central strategic role, and her sponsoring company saw ROI in that it filled out its leadership ranks.
