On Tuesday, April 26 the Center for Business Analytics hosted an Industry Roundtable Dinner Discussion focused on Supply Chain Management.

Facilitated by Senior Lecturer in Decision Sciences, Russell Miles, the Center welcomed 22 industry executives and experts to UNH to discuss the challenges and opportunities in the Supply Chain Management industry, as well as ways UNH can better prepare students for careers in SCM and operations.

Companies in attendance included LL Bean, Johnson & Johnson, Liberty Mutual, Lindt, & Sprungli, BAE Systems, Welch's, and others.

In addition, Gartner’s Research Vice President, Ken Chadwick, shared analysis from Gartner’s 2020 report of the Top 25 North American graduate programs in SCM.

The discussion covered a lot of ground, but focused on three main areas:

•    What modules, topics, tools should all entry-level Supply Chain
candidates know?
•    How would you or your organization like to engage with UNH?
•    How can UNH best support you and your organization?

The Roundtable is part of the Center for Business Analytics' larger efforts to engage with industry partners in a variety of ways. It comes two weeks after our Analytics Technology & Career Event, in which nearly 175 +students and 20+ companies came together at the Center for networking and direct dialogue.

We look forward to continuing these conversations with industry, and turning insights into action.

Thank you to everyone who attended!
