About SCMI

Developing today's supply chain professionals.

The Supply Chain Management Institute (SCMI) was created in 1999 and today has earned a reputation for supporting the development of exceptional professionals who are sought after by industry and the public sector alike.

SCMI shares all of its insights and best practices through graduate web-based programs, residence programs, executive education and semi-annual forums. We support every supply chain-related program at USD, including the master's in supply chain management, the undergraduate minor and the supply chain concentration for MBA students.
