Pathways to Supply Chain Program

Women account for 37% of students in supply chain courses, yet only 5% of C-suite executives in Fortune 500 companies. In comparison, women hold 15% of executive officer positions at Fortune 500 firms. While there is a relative balance of men/women at the undergraduate level, the imbalance at senior leadership levels is dramatic.

Regardless of these factors, The Max M. Fisher College of Business created a program to enhance the pathways to success for students in supply chain as a means of enhancing the aggregate skillset. This program, offered by the Operations and Business Analytics Department, is a scholarship, experiential cohort program, with opportunities for students to engage with industry executives in a mentoring capacity. The program is open to all undergraduate students regardless of sex or gender.
