Supply Chain Focus
The Executive MBA - Global Supply Chain is first and foremost a Master of Business Administration. The program helps supply chain professionals become business leaders by developing skills in accounting, finance, marketing and leadership through applied methodology, not abstract problem sets. What makes this EMBA unique is a focus on how supply chain management can deliver business value as it has for companies like Amazon, Apple, Dell and Wal-Mart.
The Executive MBA - Global Supply Chain’s design is rooted in feedback from supply chain senior executives who sit on the Advisory Board of UT’s Global Supply Chain Institute. More than 40 corporations comprise this Advisory Board including Amazon, Boeing, Dell, FedEx, Johnson & Johnson, Mondelez, Procter & Gamble and Wal-Mart.
Haslam’s supply chain faculty meet with this Advisory Board twice a year, and their input is critical to creating a curriculum that delivers the core competencies expected in high performers.
