No. 1 in supply chain

Pause

Join us for the first ever MSU Supply Chain Management Alumni Conference September 14th and 15th, 2023! Come back to MSU’s campus for a two-day conference packed with academic and industry sessions, panel discussions, and plenty of networking opportunities. Be inspired by and collaborate with other SCM alumni on the challenges facing today’s supply chains. The conference will feature leading alumni and faculty in the areas of retail and last mile, supply chain economics, and the future of supply chains. Catch up on what our current students are experiencing in the Broad College of Business and how the support from our alumni has impacted their futures. Best of all, return to MSU’s beautiful campus during one of the most vibrant times of the year. You’ll be spending time at the new Minskoff Pavilion in the Business College as well as at the Kellogg Center on the west end of campus. Who will continue to lead the way in Supply Chain Management? Spartans Will.
