Supply Chain Management: How the Curricula of the Top Ten Undergraduate Universities Meet the Practitioners' Knowledge Set
Bahouth, Saba; Hartmann, David; Willis, Geoff
American Journal of Business Education, v7 n4 p285-298 2014
The disciplines of logistics and supply chain management have the potential of having many areas of emphasis. Universities that have some kind of emphasis in this field have developed programs that depend on the need of potential employers and their own faculty mix. Several studies have previously looked at how universities deal with this field at the graduate level, mainly as part of their MBA program. In this study, the authors focus on the ten universities in the United States that have the leading undergraduate programs in supply chain management. They look at each of their curriculum in terms of courses and course content and see how each of these universities satisfies a previously established knowledge set for this field of study. They realize that there will most likely never be in the foreseeable future a well-structured and agreed upon common curriculum for teaching this particular subject matter. The intended audiences are businesses that are hiring new graduates and the universities that are looking to start a similar program.
