Background: In 2010, the E-business and Supply Chain Management program of the TSU College of Business and its program partners will host its first Supply Chain Summit. The Summit provides a platform for industry leaders and educators to share expertise on the challenges and opportunities in supply chain. It also serves as an opportunity to support education efforts that equip future supply chain leaders with industry solutions.
This year’s Summit will target sustainability. Whether it’s transportation, alternative packaging or energy, the decisions that must be made will have a multi-generational impact. Understanding that impact is imperative for current and future decision makers.
