  • Supply chain is really quite a broad subject. You know there's finance, there's budgeting,

  • there's scheduling, there's management. Supply chain and supply chain management is

  • more well established as a field and pretty well served by business schools but they're

  • not offering the same sort of interdisciplinary approach that we are. With the kind of flexibility

  • we have with an online program we're able to offer a more specialized program. Ours

  • is the first one that I've seen that offers a specific focus on the logistics and the

  • transportation of the supply chain. We've spent a lot of time here at the University

  • developing personal relationships with people across disciplines but then also understanding

  • those fields and what they bring to the problem. It's a little overwhelming how effective our

  • advisory board is. I mean these are really top notch people who don't get to be in the

  • positions that they're in without being very insightful, very focused, and when they put

  • their attention on something, they're effective. Our primary goal in engaging them is to ensure

  • that the curriculum is relevant, to make sure that students we produce have the skills that

  • they want to hire. And they know that better than we do. The first third of the work load

  • is really foundations to the fundamental tradeoff that you have to address when you're designing

  • an efficient supply chain. The second third of the program are what I think of as the

  • sort of strategic advantages once you have that foundation. In the last part you get

  • to practice doing that on your own not you know through some structured homework assignment

  • but a partnership between the student and their employer.

  • One of the assets to our online program, it actually allows us to more individualize the

  • program for them. Students who have had different backgrounds, you know some with more extensive

  • professional training, some with an undergraduate degree in industrial engineering, some with

  • an undergraduate degree in business. When we match with the right student who wants

  • a focused program on supply chain transportation and logistics, we can provide it to them in

  • a way that we wouldn't have been able to with a traditional program.

  • We really want students to walk away with sort of what I call "strategic knowledge"

  • so they don't just know how to apply this software tool and figure out which route is

  • the cheapest, but they have an intuition for what those tradeoffs are and how they play

  • off in the supply chain and they can be sort of ahead of the computer.
