The Texas A&M Supply Chain Consortium is committed to serving member firms as a strategic partner for the acquisition of talent, relevant knowledge, industry best practices and cutting-edge research. We provide our corporate members with benefits in five key areas.
Access to Top Student Talent
Our corporate partners enjoy special opportunities to interact with our supply chain students at a range of recruiting events, including a “casino night” and “speed networking night” each year. In addition, we invite students to attend several of our consortium meetings for corporate partners each year. We also host lunch and dinner events for each of our corporate partners where they have a chance to mix and mingle with students. Corporate partners also have the chance to make presentations to students in classroom settings, promote their companies on campus through other channels and receive advance notice of student résumé books.
Ability to Help Shape Curriculum
We recognize that we cannot address all aspects of the supply chain discipline in our undergraduate program. So we consult our corporate partners about the strategic direction of our curriculum as well as specific classes, course content, full-length case studies and mini-cases. In this way, our corporate partners help us ensure that our students have relevant knowledge when they enter the workforce.
Networking with Supply Chain Industry Leaders
Our corporate partners have the chance to network with other supply chain executives and scholars through board meetings, social gatherings and recruiting events. Many of these events are held at locations convenient to our Consortium members.
Access to Customized Executive Education Seminars
As we gain a deeper understanding of each of our corporate partners, we will have the opportunity to develop customized executive education seminars to meet their unique business needs. Our world-class faculty is committed to designing tailored programs that will help partner organizations achieve competitive advantage in their respective industries.
Research Focused on Partners’ Business Challenges
Mays Business School’s supply chain faculty is ranked 8th internationally in terms of publications in top journals, including Production and Operations Management and Journal of Operations Management. Our professors focus their research efforts on solving real-world problems with practical business application. We are committed to leveraging our considerable research capability to help corporate partners solve business problems they’re currently facing.
