Is Supply-Chain Management the New B-School Must-Have?

b-schoolThe supply chain has expanded yet again, this time into classrooms. Francesca di Meglio writes for Bloomberg Businessweek about the demand for undergrads and MBAs with proficiency in supply chain management. Reportedly, “nearly 200,000 U.S. supply-chain jobs will go unfilled each year through 2018 for lack of qualified talent.” Supply chain knowledge has become a competitive advantage in a field full of consultants and investment bankers. Rutgers Business School established a supply chain MBA as far back as 2001, and in recent years has even developed an undergraduate program for it. Onsite recruiting is a major perk that comes with this, as 57 companies came to Rutgers last year with 75 expected to attend this year. Even a supply chain management minor offered at Bryant University’s College of Business has offered promising results for students; any indication that someone has supply chain knowledge can be quite the boon in the job market. Maybe keep this in mind when you ship your own kids off to school!
