33rd Annual SCMI Fall Forum

October 22–23, 2018

University of San Diego, Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice

Risk, Borders, & Supply Chain

For 33 years and counting, USD's Supply Chain Management Institute has brought industry executives together to share insights and best practices at the Fall Forum.

This year's theme is Risk, Borders, & Supply Chain. Global supply chain risks are perpetual, pervasive, and peaking toward an all-time high, based on the CIPS Risk Index, by Dun & Bradstreet. How can we better explain the impact of changing trade policies? How do we better assess and build awareness for risks and opportunities?  Do cyber security and border threats compare? 

You will hear from C-level business leaders and distinguished University of San Diego faculty. Through all of our speakers and workshops, you will have plenty of opportunities to dig deeper into the topics—and find inspiration for optimizing your supply chain.

Join us for a hike through these rocky issues!
