Network Scholars

The Network Scholars program offers undergraduate and graduate supply chain management students a unique opportunity to connect with industry executives and senior faculty. The program involves a 2-semester sequence in which students register for a 1 credit course in the fall and a 1 credit course in the spring. During each semester, students will attend a one day seminar designed to provide networking and educational opportunities with industry executives.

Members of the W. P. Carey undergraduate and graduate career services team will also provide coaching/mentoring to the students during the semester to ensure that they are prepared for these interactions. As academic credit is granted, projects external to the seminar (such as recommended readings and company supply chain reports) will be required each semester.
