A reader asked what the United States, supply chain management professional
graduate programs. Here on the MBA with supply chain management of several
schools to make a brief introduction. If you readers have more information, please

Times (Financial Times) and other agencies have similar rankings. Here mainly to
U.S. News rankings.
From large academic perspective, supply chain management previously attached to

After about five years (author is a time when business schools), supply chain
management as a separate discipline, with accounting, finance, information systems,
management, international management, marketing, non-profit operation, business,
and manufacturing operations tied . U.S. News ranking in 2007, supply chain

want to test CPM, you do not see this book. But the book is worth reading. Because
the production and operation management is the mother of modern industrial
management. Supply chain management is sometimes attached to the Department of
Operations Management.

Authority on this book is 鲍尔索克斯 (Donald J. Bowersox) and Claus (David J.
Closs) of Logistical Management: The Integrated Supply Chain Process. The two
professors have taught at Michigan State University, is the godfather of the logistics
management-level figures. The book is relatively old (published in 1996), but this
does not affect its authority. I have read the book. Not found is a Chinese version.
Query Dangdang, some updates can be found 鲍尔索克斯 the works should be good,
but because there is no read, not to make improper comments.
Another good book is the Fundamentals of Logistics Management (2005 edition). The
author, Professor at Arizona State University, Lisa Ellram is one of the authors. Not
found is a Chinese version.
