Why you should consider Ivy Tech’s Supply Chain Management/Logistics program amid supply chain snafus

For more than two and a half years the U.S. has been talking about supply chain snafus.

This prolonged pandemic has slowed the supply chain to a crawl, and it’s creating new challenges for the people charged with managing industrial supply chains.

On this Education Monday, Claire Maxson, Dean of School of Business, Logistics, and Supply Chain at Ivy Tech Community College, joined us on “Life.Style.Live!” to discuss Ivy Tech’s Supply Chain Management/Logistics program.

This program prepares students to enter the workforce with the skills demanded in the industry. It also addresses the movement and storage of raw materials, work-in-process inventory, analysis and finished goods.

Ivy Tech is also hosting a school spotlight event where you can learn more about the program. It’s happening on Tuesday, September 13 at 10 a.m. at the Illinois Fall Creek Center (Indianapolis Campus) at 2535 N. Capitol Avenue Indianapolis, IN 46208.
