Message from the chair
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Department of Supply Chain Management, W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. The Supply Chain Management department at ASU is consistently highly-ranked and is one of the largest supply chain management departments in the country. Supply Chain Management encompasses the management and integration of all the activities, processes, and information involved in the sourcing, movement and transformation of tangible “things” (e.g. raw materials, components and products) and intangible “things” (e.g. information, ideas, research, services) into useable and relevant outputs. In the department of supply chain management at ASU, our activities cover every single aspect of the integration and transformation processes. In addition, our vision is to become the “World’s Supply Chain University”.
To achieve our vision, we offer undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, certificates and continuing and executive education products and services to both domestic and international audiences. We produce world-class research that are published in leading journals, improve our discipline and engage with industry and civil society. We bring supply chain thought leadership to the world’s most pressing problems. We influence and inspire our stakeholders to improve the communities we serve. However, without leading minds, top scholars, award-winning researchers and instructors and staff, none of these would be possible. I welcome you to engage with our world-class faculty and staff.
The Department of Supply Chain Management at Arizona State University is ready as always for business. We are ready to continue to be a thought leader in the field of Supply Chain Management. We are ready to continue to positively impact the communities and stakeholders that we serve. Feel free to contact us for your needs. We welcome your engagements. Thank you!
