Keynote Presentation featuring Howard University: "Evolution of Supply Chain Education - What Do You Expect from Future Graduates?"

Many University or College Supply Chain programs currently focus on core Operations, Production/Manufacturing, Procurement and Logistics undergraduate and graduate level courses.  Other elective Supply Chain courses augment these core courses to provide specialized skills critical to students and employers.  These core and elective courses provide the foundation and basic skills for future supply chain graduates and leaders to enter the Commercial, Government or Non-Profit sectors.
 
Global supply chains are evolving at a rapid pace with new products, services, technology, processes and other concepts being introduced globally.  The introduction of concepts such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Business/Data Analytics, Predictive Analytics, Digital Enterprise, Autonomous Vehicles, Drones, Alternative Fuels, Factory of the Future, Smart Manufacturing, Industry 4.0, Corporate Responsibility, Sustainability, Social Media as well as numerous other ideas have raised discussions in the Commercial, Government and Academic areas regarding the need to evolve/transform future academic programs. 
 
Some key questions to interactively discuss and brainstorm are as follows:

  • Do we keep University/College supply chain programs focused on the core skills, processes, analysis techniques and technology?
  • Do we enhance supply chain programs by introducing new courses that focus on the evolving new supply chain concepts or incorporate these new concepts into existing courses?
  • Are there critical new concepts that supply chain students should be exposed to immediately in the respective supply chain programs and courses?
  • What additional concepts do we need to incorporate into the core and elective courses to enhance supply chain student skills and prepare them for careers in the supply chain arena?
  • What are we missing that will enhance knowledge base and skills of students and/or industry Professionals?

 
All attendees will have the opportunity to contribute ideas, recommendations and challenges that will further enhance University/College supply chain programs.
