Supply Chain

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.
