What led ASU’s W.P. Carey School of Business to offer such a specialized department?— “ASU has long had significant expertise in supply management [procurement], logistics management and operations management—the three pillars of Supply Chain Management. ASU was forward thinking enough over a decade ago to realize that the importance of Supply Chain Management was increasing and that a discipline that included the three pillars was needed.”— John W.

How is MSU’s Dpt. of Supply Chain Management keeping pace with the supply chain skill-sets necessary today?—“We have one of the oldest programs available today as we started integrating logistics and procurement in the late ’60s. We try to teach people a balanced perspective of procurement and production logistics, helping to create long-term senior managers who then have a wider perspective on what supply chain management is. While we have traditionally emphasized breadth in supply chain—and we still do—we try to improve its depth by taking out the redundancy and introducing integrated tools so people start to understand how the various functions of supply chain interact and trade work.”— David Closs, Chairperson, Department of Supply Chain Management, MSU
