The Benefits of Sponsoring Your Team

Supporting your team by sponsoring them through the MS in Supply Chain Management delivers real benefits to you and your organization.

1. Provide Professional Development

Retaining and developing talent is a critical issue facing all sectors. We are seeing a significant shortage of truly qualified and capable professionals in supply chain.

Ensuring you have the talent you need in your business requires a dedicated and high quality development program. With increasing pressures on recruitment and retention, the MS-SCM provides a leading edge opportunity to build your organizational talent, develop the leaders of tomorrow, and increase your attractiveness as an employer -- without taking away from their work schedule.

2. Address Your Organization's Strategic Needs

The integrative project in the MS-SCM -- where students tackle a supply chain management problem in their own organizations that could yield $50,000 in savings or more -- is the perfect mechanism for you to put your best team onto a pressing organizational supply problem.

Student sponsors have seen millions of dollars in benefits through the project deliverables, and have developed world-class professionals with a commitment to delivering tangible improvements.

Here are just some of the success stories from the MS-SCM project.

3. Gain Access to Leading Knowledge and Thought Leaders

Our highly experienced faculty experts provide a valuable resource for you to develop your organizational capabilities, build your understanding of world-class supply chain management, and give you access to the thought leaders in the field.

4. Develop a Learning Organization

There is no better way to build your organizational capabilities than to generate a culture of constant improvement and innovation. The MS-SCM is not only two years that will change the lives of the students you send to the program, but it also will cultivate an open, exciting, and creative environment for all of your supply chain professionals.

5. ROI from Integrative Project

In year two, students apply knowledge gained in coursework in leadership, change management, ethics and marketing to actual issues at the workplace. Many organizations receive a positive financial return on their tuition investment.
