Supply chain management program among "hot new MBAs"

Bryant's global supply chain management program is among those included in this Wall Street Journal article headlined "The Hot New MBA: Supply-Chain Management," which appears in the newspaper's June 6 U.S. edition and online.

The article notes that a handful of universities "have recently introduced undergraduate majors, M.B.A. concentrations and even entire degree programs dedicated to procurement, inventory management and global supply-chain strategy." Associate Professor Teresa McCarthy, director of Bryant's global supply chain management program, told the paper that employers "don't want cobbled-together courses, they want a real, content-laden supply-chain program," and noted that "Bryant has nearly 150 undergraduate and M.B.A. students pursuing a major or concentration in the field, and employers are taking note."
