PROJECT REQUEST

Course Title

MGMT 4900 – Logistics and Supply Chain Management Capstone

Collaboration Overview

I am looking for a partnership with a business that is willing to bridge the gap between conceptual learning and experiential learning.  Often, students may understand concepts based on what they learn in books, but it is the hands-on process that gives students the ah-ha moment of understanding.  I would like for my students to think outside of the box and come up with new and innovative ideas to solve problems within the logistics and supply chain management field.  I want a company that is open to new ideas and is willing to pose questions and guidance that will give the students an area to practice what they have learned. Why should you choose us?  That is easy.  We are a relatively new program (2 1/2 yrs old), and we have students who are eager to show what they have learned throughout their degree.  My teaching philosophy compares logistics and supply chain to a chessboard.  Pieces may be contained in a square (box), but they are not limited to the square.  By moving outside of the box, they can achieve the goal of capturing the king.  That is, logistics and supply chain management.
