Department of Supply Chain Management - Industry Partners

Industry Partners

The Supply Chain Management Department at the W. P. Carey School of Business places a high value on industry partnerships and considers them an essential component of our leadership role in finding solutions to current challenges. 

We are interested in what practitioners do, why they do it, how they think about their business challenges, and how they use information to drive decisions.

Companies find value in partnering with ASU and the Department of Supply Chain Management as it provides an opportunity to connect with our students, other industry partners, and our faculty.    The resulting relationship enables companies to have input into curriculum design, interact with our students, and drive forward thinking and unique research directions. 

We take great pride in the relationships we form with our industry partners and our joint commitment to finding new solutions and forging innovative ways to create value for all.

Our partners include:

  • Network for Value Chain Excellence
    The Network for Value Chain Excellence was created in 2010 with the goal of becoming a unique and customer centric community of supply chain executives and extended leaders.  The Executive Board meets twice a year to determine Network activities, interact with top undergraduate and MBA supply chain students, collaborate with faculty about curriculum, and deepen relationships with SCM faculty and other industry leaders.
  • CAPS Research
    CAPS Research is the premier nonprofit global research organization dedicated to supply and supply chain issues. Since 1986, the center has been providing thorough, practical research for our strategic-minded corporate sponsors and the public. Our research products and events are aimed at executives with strategic responsibilities for the supply/sourcing/procurement effort.
  • Center for Supply Networks
    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 preeminent research institution in the discipline of supply chain management through a focus on studying supply networks and sustainability as complex adaptive systems.
  • Health Sector Supply Chain Research Consortium
    The Health Sector Supply Chain Research Consortium (HSRC-ASU) is a research group within the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University.
