The Executive MBA (EMBA) for Global Supply Chain gives you the opportunity to think and live outside the box. As a student in this program, you will meet clients, investors, suppliers, and life-long friends. You will gain access to the international community of supply chain executives and leading scholars. Most importantly, you will acquire knowledge from the #1 globally ranked faculty for supply chain research.
Much of the program’s design is rooted in feedback from supply chain senior executives who sit on the Advisory Board of UT’s Global Supply Chain Institute. The 40+ corporations represented on this esteemed Advisory Board include Amazon, Boeing, Dell, Johnson & Johnson, Kraft, Macy’s, Nestle, Proctor & Gamble and more.
These senior executives know what it takes to run world-class supply chains. UT’s leading supply chain faculty meet with them biannually, and their input was critical to creating a curriculum that delivers the core competencies expected in high performers.
