Center for Supply Networks (CaSN)
The mission of the Center for Supply Networks at the W. P. Carey School of Business is to advance the science of supply networks and sustainability management. Our goal is to become the pre-eminent research institution in the discipline of supply chain management through a focus on studying supply networks and sustainability as complex adaptive systems.
These components and theoretical foundations are central to our mission:
- Conducting supply network research
- Leading cutting-edge research in sustainable supply chains
- Taking the field beyond dyadic buyer-supplier relationships to triadic relationships and other network archetypes
- Adopting complex adaptive systems theory as an overarching theoretical perspective.
