Indiana's University of Evansville recently announced the addition of a logistics and supply chain management program (LSCM), which will kick off in the fall 2018 semester.
The university says the program is ideally timed, as the country currently is experiencing a 6-to-1 demand-to-supply ratio in the field.
“We have listened to our regional business community and
responded,” Schroeder Family School Dean Greg Rawski said. “Our LSCM program
will be impactful and will fortify our 98 percent career placement rate – one
of the best in the nation.”
The university plans to open a center for logistics and
supply chain management, offering experiential learning
and linking students with companies, the Indiana Logistics Summit, the University
of Arkansas’ mock Walmart warehouse program and training on LSCM technology.
The program will build upon the LSCM offerings already
available at UE, which saw a student team win third place in the Conexus
Logistics Case Competition.
“The UE team’s third place win was very impressive
considering they have had limited exposure to the field of logistics and supply
chain management,” said UE Assistant Professor Yolanda Obaze, who teaches supply
