How Partners Benefit
Partnership with the SCRC can provide real cost reduction and process-improvement benefits. The return on investment on this initiative has been described by our partners as a “no-brainer.”
Our students and thought leaders engage with industry partners in the field and in the classroom to work through business challenges and create innovative, actionable solutions.
Business project sponsors have ready access to supply chain faculty and the ability to submit proposals for practicum projects — putting the best minds to work on a problem. They gain working relationships with students and an inside track to future recruits.
We have been able to implement recommendations from many of the projects and immediately see the results of the students’ efforts.

We advance new information to help supply chains thrive in a complex and competitive marketplace. Partner companies attend twice-yearly meetings to discuss supply chain issues and challenges. They also gain access to extensive Bloomberg research databases and archived projects, along with hundreds of articles and white papers, our Executive Director’s blog and a secure members’ portal.
