Global Supply Chain Management Initiative (GSCMI)

Many of today's most successful firms attribute their success to a strategically managed global supply chain. The complexities of coordinating and collaborating within a global network of designers, manufacturers, distributors and retailers grow as businesses seek to attain a competitive advantage through carefully formulated strategies for managing flows in physical, informational and financial channels.

The Global Supply Chain Management Initiative gives current and future managers the opportunity to be on the forefront of emerging ideas and technologies that promise to provide a differentiating advantage to businesses in the future.

This initiative offers a broad-based approach to develop your business skills through a variety of programs. Please visit our website at gscmi.org for more information.
