Supply Chain

Every year, an off-campus trip provides students in the W. P. Carey Master of Science in Global Logistics (MS‑GL) program with an exclusive look at global logistics infrastructure. It's an invaluable opportunity for students to explore their field — in the field — while adding real-world context to concepts learned in class.

A group of 15 supply chain students from the W. P. Carey Full-time MBA visited three companies in the Portland area — Daimler, Nike, and Columbia Sportswear. Because we have such a strong network of alumni, the Supply Chain Club was able to set up a day at each company through a recent W. P. Carey alum.

Finance, accounting, and tax have a longstanding legacy in businesses of all shapes and sizes, but it’s no secret the business world is changing. &nbsp;According to the <em>Journal of Accountancy</em></a>, businesses are looking to finance and related functions to help navigate these new changes and complexity. And while this puts them in an “enviable position of influence […] increased skills are needed to meet additional responsibilities.”

W. P. Carey Supply Chain Management Professor Craig Carter hopes to bring the latest research to managers through a new podcast series based on articles in the Journal of Supply Chain Management.
Since he began exploring supply chain management three decades ago, Professor Scott Webster has taken a broad view, examining the pricing of fashion products, flexible workday policies, winemaking, and more.
